What would my horse look good in?:)



This is my horse junior.
He is a 2006 dapple grey TB gelding.
Hes 17 hands.
Id like to know what kind of tack hed look good in? Wether it be english or western etc. He was just recently put thru 30 days of training and is such an angel. Hes really been a good boy for me being at an advanced beginner level:) anyways, he has been my "pleasure horse" for the past month and i really think that he has more potential. I think he could be anything he wanted! He can walk trot and canter and has been doing it very well. Id like to know where you guys think i should go from here? Showing english, showing western, eventing, dressage, jumping etc lol. Anything you think hed excell in by his confirmation or looks ! He had an old injury(a bone spur in his front knee) that prevented him from being a racehorse. He had 2 years pasture rest and thats where i came in and gave him a new job. Hes enjoying his new life much better! No more rain rot, long hooves, or knotted
Mane for junior. Also what colors, blankets, bridles, boots, hairstyles etc would suit him well? Being a new rider im blind to things that make horses show their true beauty! :) You can also post your pics of your horses in tack to five me ideas! Or before and afters of them! Thanks guys:) hope this will be fun and spark some interesting convos!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

That right there is my dream horse...so if you go to the barn one day and find him missing, he's not here in NJ with me. Nope.

I think he would look stunning in royal purple.

As to what discipline...I guess it really depends on what you are interested in most.

I think he would look great in aqua. Gorgeous boy you have. I love his dapples! I think he would look good in English but it is really up to you. He could carry off either! I am in love with him. Sorry if he disappears you and Jake and Dai will have to fight me for him:)

Yeah, he would look really good in purple, or even maybe a light blue would look nice. He is very beautiful! I've always loved those dapple greys. :)
