    What discipline should I use him for?

    Luca is a 6year old 16hh Standardbred gelding. He used to be a pacer so he was broken in when he was already 5 (which I think is still a good age, though.) he is doing well under "saddle" (I ride him bareback at the moment) and jumps 75cm (free- jumping) here are some pics of him

    He's kinda dirty in this pic and standing in a slight hill...:

    What discipline would he be best suited to? I'm just wondering...thanks!

    It all depends alot on personality.
    As far as his conformation goes, he is a typical STB
    He has a nice shoulder and good depth through the girth/chest
    Nothing very off about his front legs
    Look solid
    Back is not a bad length either
    Steep slope to the croup and his hindquarters could use muscling
    Somewhat sickle-hocked but that is very common i've noticed in Standardbreds. Not to a sever point where it may affect his jumping ability if you wanted to take him in that direction.
    Overall, his conformation isn't too terrible

    He is very affectionate but sometimes gets his 'stubborn' mi nets where I have to concentrate very hard on getting him to do what I want. But he loves to work, especially trotting amd jumping. He has a nice trot!
