The Best Colour Browband to Use on a Chestnut Horse

Choosing the perfect browband for your chestnut horse is not just about aesthetics; it’s about showcasing your horse's natural beauty while ensuring comfort and style. At Lumiere, we understand the importance of both form and function. Whether you're aiming for a polished look in the dressage ring or a standout appearance in the show jumping arena, the right browband can make all the difference.

Understanding Chestnut Horses

Chestnuts are known for their stunning reddish-brown coats, which can range from light copper to deep, rich mahogany. Their vibrant coat colour offers a fantastic canvas for a variety of browband colours, each bringing out different aspects of their natural beauty.

Classic Choices

  1. Gold and Champagne:
    • Why it Works: Gold and champagne tones complement the warm hues of a chestnut coat, creating a harmonious and elegant look. These colours add a touch of luxury and refinement, perfect for dressage or eventing.
    • How to Style: Pair a gold-accented browband with a dark brown or black bridle for a sophisticated and cohesive appearance.
    • Our Top Pick: The Megan Browband
  2. Deep Reds and Ambers:
    • Why it Works: These shades enhance the reddish undertones of a chestnut horse, creating a cohesive and striking appearance. They are particularly effective for creating a bold, regal look.
    • How to Style: Match with a black bridle to ensure the browband stands out without overwhelming the overall look.
