i've seen a drk grey horse out competing before and the rider had on some light blue and pink, suited him very nicely indeed :) but i think a white would go well with you also ! :D xx

Mine's a light dapple grey and it's great as almost ANY colour goes and looks good too!! :D :D
I wear navy blue and silver :)

P.S. I don't usually wear light blue breeches! I normally wear beige but this was at a XC clinic :)

i've seen people in all sorts of dark greys... they are a lucky colour because most colours look good! i would agree with LBertie Wooster about light blue and pink looking nice on greys... :) xx

Anything goes with dark greys :)

I ride in a pinky/burgundy sort of colour, but I've had others ride him in turquoise or bright yellow!

I think greys can really suit bright colours, rather than pastel type shades. I had black and yellow on my grey mare though she was light:

We have a lovely grey mare, who has sadly gone lighter! As other posts have said, you can get away with any colour. As we do western, we've played with colours for saddle pads and shirts a lot. Purple looks fab, as does turquoise and even lime green. Avoid black, white, and TBH I would say navy, and be creative!

Excuse the loud checked shirt, but you get the idea!

I love bright colours for cross country. This is my old horse was a light grey with me (yellow) and my sister (pink)



I will put this one up too. This was me about 15 years ago on a blue roan.
