    Peeps, I know I had an old thread from 2011 on "Brown Tack in Dressage" but since it's been a few years, I thought I'd bring up this very FRIVILOUS but FUN topic again!

    I love brown tack (I'm really a H/J, wannabe Eventer) and think it looks especially stunning on chestnuts, palominos and silver dapples :)

    Check out this GORGEOUS pair!!! Rider is also wearing BROWN....and I love brown boots, helmet etc.

    What do you think of the Brown Trend? :) (well, not really a trend.....I know BLACK is traditional and normal)

    I LOVE brown.

    I much prefer it on my flea bitten grey but unfortunately of the two saddles I have right now the black one fits both of us better :(

    I have brown tack! Though that's because I got my Passier from my mother's friend for a song. Seriously, $100 for an older Passier PSL in superb condition! :D

    I have a black horse and I just don't like how black tack looks on him. I've got a fitter coming out in a couple weeks and he is bringing a brown saddle. I really hope it fits. The saddle is pretty much unused since the owner returned it when their trainer told them they had to have a black saddle to show dressage. :rolleyez: Their loss is my gain I hope! If I get it I'll post pictures here.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE brown tack, especially brown Dressage saddles. *drools* I've got a palomino Morgan and am totally dying to get a really fancy brown dressage saddle for her (one day!).

    I just got a saddle that is bi-colour so part brown and is so gorgeous! I love the traditional look of black too but there is something really nice about the brown saddles. Especially on certain colours like the ones you mentioned.

    It was kind of faded but SUPER comfortable :) I use to ride my chestnut with a brown dressage saddle.

    You already know how I feel about the brown boot thing. ;)

    I saw a pic of an eventer somewhere in the past couple months that had all dark brown tack with a navy helmet and navy shadbelly for dressage. It looked super pretty. They seem to be doing a lot of navy right now, I've seen navy helmets all over the place in the event pictures. Also seen a lot of dressage folks with brown boots. Hope the trend carries over to h/j... although I don't really care, I love my brown boots and my navy stuff and I'll wear it whether anyone else likes it or not. :p
