Ladies in Red!

So many wonderful pieces of art depicting sidesaddle scenes, have the ladies wearing something red.  I believe I know why... is there a more striking color?  Here are just a few examples for you to drool over:

I could stare at this for hours!


 I wish this needlepoint pillow was mine!

 These are show posters.

 I know I have posted this beautiful garment before.. but it commands a second look... maybe a 3rd!

 ..and look how elegant this goofy girl looks in red!...but that horse would make anyone look amazing!
This is the famous Stubbs painting Jen mentioned in the comments!
