Colour Poll

In between my Ohio posts, I need to interrupt with an important tack buying question! Who better to help than the blogosphere?!

I am planning to order a fleece girth cover (girths are a whole other post) from Le Mieux / Horse Health UK. Shipping is expensive, so I was looking through their catalogue to see if there was anything else I wanted to order from them... and I discovered matchy matchy heaven!

They have saddle pads, fly hoods and polos in a whole bunch of really vibrant colours. I 100% don't need any of this stuff, but I saw it and I can't get it out of my mind, I want! Also, the saddle pads have tabs to secure to saddle D-rings which is a cool feature that I've never seen before but would love to try because I don't like the standard top velcro tabs on saddle pads but I've recently had some trouble with pads slipping back without them. 

So, the question is, what colour?? The fact that Kachina is a black and white pinto means that the traditional dressage colours of black and white don't look very good on her, but she can wear almost any other colour. I can think of a number of these Le Mieux colours that would look fantastic but I can only justify choosing one (and I can barely justify one lol). I'm frozen by indecision myself so I need your help, what colour should I get for miss Kachina?? (Scroll down below colour photos for poll)

Benetton Blue




Peacock Green




What colour of matchy matchy stuff should Kachina have?


  1. I voted 'plum' but I think that the teal and Peacock green would work. I hate the yellow. :)

  2. I really like the Peacock Green. But I think they'd all look great.

  3. Any will look wonderful on her, but I have to say peacock green is my fave <3

  4. I just bought a peacock green set after dithering for hours, and I already know my next set will be turquoise 😁 as a heads up, I had a Horse Health shopping cart going but was actually able to get a slightly better price from Centerline Styles after incorporating a coupon code and free shipping. I don't know if they carry the girth cover you're looking for, so YMMV 😉

    1. Thanks for the tip, they do have the girth cover I want but when I priced it out it looks like ordering from Horse Health is actually cheaper by a fair margin.

      I completely understand the dithering for hours! Though for me it's been more like weeks!

  5. Ooh, I think they'll all look great on her! Teal has my vote, though!

  6. I love them all except the yellow and that is because I'm a redhead and look terrible in yellow. My favorite is the peacock green but the blue will be more versatile and easier to match if you worry about your clothes going with your horse's.

  7. My votes were green and peacock green! But any of them would look awesome :)

  8. I. Love. Lemieux. Ordered the turquoise set a few days ago from Centerline Style. My vote is for plum - I love deep reds on black and white horses!

  9. I call dibs on teal. But seriously, they're all awesome. I like the peacock green and plum a lot too.

  10. Lovely selection, honestly I don't think you can go wrong!! I have had a few different Lemieux products over the years and recently got a navy saddle pad. I'm in love!!

  11. I'm glad other people have ordered and liked the Lemieux products, they look really nice but I haven't had a chance to see them in person.

    Thanks for the colour feedback, but I'm not sure it's helping! Benneton Blue and Peacock Green were the two I was leaning towards to start and they both have the most votes so far. It does look like I will strike yellow off the list!
