what would you breed with a TB for a show horse

not that I am going to but I just got a TB mare who has made some really successful babies and they were bred by different breeds and I was talking to my sis and she would pick a Friesian and I like the gypsy vannor what other exotic breeds would you breed if you could breed anything

With a thoroughbred? I would definitely breed to a warmblood, either a nice Hanoverian, Dutch Warmblood, or an Oldenburg.

I don't really think there are exotic warmbloods...
I personally like the ones I metioned, but there are also: Westphalians, Danish Warmbloods,
Brandenburgers, Hessens, Holsteiners, Hungarian Warmbloods, Rhinelanders, Trakehners, Selle Francais', Swedish Warmbloods, Baden-Wurttemberg, and Zweibruckens.

It depends on what you want to do with the baby. If you want a harness horse, hunt horse, low level eventer, or Dressage horse, then going with a Friesian or Gypsy (that has been shown successfully in Dressage or Eventing) would be fine. However, crossing such a heavy breed with a light mare can turn out bad...

Crossing her with a proven (shown) stallion that is a Warmblood or some kind of lighter cross is probably a better idea, like a half Friesian or Gypsy cross. You want mare and stallion to compliment eachother, not contrast eachother.

I really like this Appy/Friesian cross stallion. I hope they continue to show him and build his resume further.
