Black or dark dark brown... light brown would look shocking...
I know mine is a fake, but the judge at this show kept calling him fleabitten, and was calling him in and placing him well, so I dare not say anything
not my horse I just ride him for a friend, so I didn't even have showie gear, the AP with a breastplate was all that fit him properly! but he looked fine in black if it is all you have, ideal if this was my horse he'd be in dark brown
they also pull off the white girth look pretty well if your that way inclined too!
and whilst on the subject I would go a dark brown or black numnah, a cream on the white will all look a bit odd...

My sister rides a fleabitten grey with black spots. You cant see them very well with a normal coat because it is so thick, but clipped its beautiful.
We use black gear, but sometimes i find it too harsh on her, and if we showed her, opposed to dressage, she would look better in a dark brown.
