cant pick a color for my horse

I have about 20 saddle pads and halters for my 1 horse...all are different colors and i just cant find a color that I can stick with. Hes bay, and he can pull off sooo many colors, that its hard to choose!
I want to have just one or 2 colors that we use, because it looks like a rainbow exploded on Teddy right now. hes got a burgundy and black blanket, a hunter green quarter sheet, a blue halter and a purple saddle pad
I will post some pictures of him.
what color(s) should i use?

That orange really makes his bay colouring pop!

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

I like royal blue or lime green on bays

I could never imagine having a day go by without looking into my horse's eyes and seeing the honesty, power, and strength that is within him.

Turquoise is me and ( my bay) Reggie's colour. But I have always considered swapping to orange.. I do find orange quite striking on your boy :).

That orange looks surprisingly good!
I always use greens and blues on my bay with an occasionally turquoise. He looks awful in burgundy, purple or dull red. Bright red or black looks good on him for a saddle pad but awful in a halter.
Generally I pick a color I like and buy most things in that color for a particular horse. The rule is to stay away from colors that are too close to his color. The clash can be painful!
Even so, I'm like you, I seem to have ended up with a lot of different colors of tack anyway!!
