I must admit I went a little overboard, but I have not worn much red for years. Every time I made something in red, my husband would say something honest like "It's a nice design but it's so RED".
The man apparently doesn't like the color.
I love red for its fiery accent to grey, and it is a wonderful color for my horse, who is black. I think Big Nick and I will make a very striking pair with a little red in our trail outfits.
I normally wear breeches if using my english saddle and jeans with the western saddle. Either way, Nick and I would bring some holiday cheer with his red biothane bridle and me in a new red scoop necked long sleeved tee. I have this pattern for the neckline and a self drafted pattern for the rest of the tee.
Red saddle pad might be nice too!
