That was quick. Did you figure out how much he leased for and get everything agreed on in just a couple of hours?

Glad you got everything figured out regarding the lease. Just make sure you confirm the owner's are okay with you switching up his saddle pad/boots before purchasing anything. Ultimately its the owners decision what he is ridden in and some owners will be hesitant to change whats already working for a horse. That being said if the owner's are okay with it I would keep it neutral, Navy or Burgundy.

The cherry red, rose gold glitter, navy glitter, and burgundy/gray sets would look good on him/her.

I would not buy any of those sets that include the stirrups. They would have to be really cheaply made stirrups indeed to be included for that price. That's like putting cheap brakes on your car, . . . penny wise and pound foolish.

Also, glitter may rub off and get all over everything. There is one rule of good design, and it applies to fashion too:
the KISS theory which stands for Keep It Simple, Stupid!

don't think I"m callling you stupid. It's just the way the acronym reads. Clean, simple colors are the best.

The other thing is the saddle on the horse is a GP/AP. Dressage pads are cut very straight which means you might end up with the binding seam underneath the flap rather than in front of it. So for that saddle you'd be better off with an AP pad which'll be cut slightly more forward.

Oooh. My vote would be rose gold, or teal. I think the rose gold might pop better though since its lighter. But be weary of the glitter, I mean in general it gets everywhere but I feel like that would mess with the saddle.

Congratulations on your lease!

I love all of these. I think burgundy would look really sharp on him, though I also personally love rose gold, teal, and turquoise/pink, as I love those colors in general. I think it would also depend on whether you're going for a more understated look, or more bright/popping. I like both burgundy and navy for the former, and teal and turquoise/pink for the latter.

Agreed to be leery of cheap stirrups, as that's a safety issue.

yes I saw in the description of the product that the stirrups are sold separately.
