I can't decide between royal blue and bright green! I've seen some gorgeous stuff!

Anything looks good on a grey!

I have a dapple grey and I use any color on him. I have teal,blue,red,burgandy,purple. Most of them are wool rugs with a pattern or stripes.(western)...

My younger sister has a dark chestnut, but she uses both royal blue and neon green together. Her (western) saddle pad is solid royal blue, and she has blue suede covered barrel reins, then most of her other stuff is lime green (her lunge whip, lead ropes, buckets, she sometimes wears lime green at shows...). The effect is actually pretty cool, and I could easily see it on a dapple grey.

Sky blue looks fantastic on dapples in my opinion :)

I love bright red on a dapple grey!

Bright purple - not too girlie if you think of it as a color for a king.

Check out the saddle pads on I'm getting a blue one custom made for my palomino - she'll make just about any color or pattern you want. Plus, she's a hoot to talk to on the phone.

I was normal...then I got a horse.

I find putting a dapple grey in a white pad makes the dapples stand out. Putting them in a black pad makes the dark points (legs for example) stand out.

I have a dapple gray and I have found that almost any color looks good on him. I tend to avoid yellows and oranges though because they do clash with his buckskin mark on his head. However, I am partial to royal blue on any horse; but then again, that is my fave color.
