Brown tends to get a bad press for being, well, boring. But here at Matchy Horsey that couldn’t be further from the truth.

With shades such as taupe. toffee, Epsom brown and royal brown to choose from, this is a colour that is great for riders not only looking for something for everyday use, but also the smart option.

As a rule, rich browns look great on chestnuts as well as skewbalds, while lighter shades work well on bays. Teaming a brown horse in taupe also works brilliantly.
