Opinions on Saddle Blanket Colours

Hi,
What colour saddle blanket would people suggest for showing (all around)?
She is a palomino tobiano and having previously shown bays and sorrels, I need to change my blankets and shirts.
I was thinking maybe a solid honey/golden colour or something like turquoise and hope I can get a similar colour shirt.
Being in the UK, I buy most of my tack online, as no local western tack shops.
Thank you.

Forest green, dark blue, or dark red/cranberry would be my picks for this horse.

Like the above ones offered...


I would add turquoise and teal would off-set that saddle and easy enough to find matching rider apparel.
I actually would love a saddle blanket with turquoise/teal, the darker rich blue colors and deep rich red colors in it...
I think they would pop and be so eye-catching for a horse like this..
A absolute stand-out in the ring...
....
jmo...

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

Any of the deeper jewel tones would look great on your horse. Check out blankets from https://www.backroadtradingcompany.c.../show-blankets. They have GORGEOUS blankets for a very reasonable price. Here's one of their show blankets on my palomino gelding.

Thank you all so much for the suggestions. Never thought of teal or cranberry but they sound good. Now I have more to think about lol.

(Dreamcatcher Arabians, your horse and those blankets are lovely!)

Some deep earth tones with brighter contrast would also look good on her. Think chocolate browns and neutrals punctuated with a bright contrasting color


I'm a huge fan of this color pallette on a palomino paint. Also this color pallette.

Here, we match the saddle blanket to color of your show shirt. Even if the blanket is a bunch of colors, it should contain the color or one of colors on your shirt. I have a ton of show shirts, and just as many saddle blankets. To me, it looks more put together. I will post some of my coordinates, some are video captures, so not that clear.

I have several show blankets in different colors but my go to are always the Back Roads blankets. They just look more 'together' somehow. Of course, I'm always careful to pick colors that are in the blankets when I buy new shirts now.
