    Other than in my pasture, I'd say anything will look good on him!

    He'd look best in my pasture, I must tell you.

    In my opinion he would look great in a green!
    As for the discipline I think it depends on what direction you want to go in. He seems as if he could go in any, so I would say do what you want to do and see if he will fit the bill for that!
    Keep Riding!

    My goodness what a huge gray horse. Color is up to you. He won't care.

    I personally do not understand the appeal of big riding horses. Lots of people love them though. To me it is just lots more feed, more health problems, bigger tack, more to groom, bigger shoes, hard to mount, What is it that makes them so appealing? They are so impractical!

    I think he would look great in either english or western saddle. As for the discipline it really depends on what you would like to be doing with your horse and if I were you I would try jumping, western games and see what the horse seems to 'like' or excel in better than the others.
    As for the color, I would see him in either royal blue or turquoise/aqua!

    I'm not understanding how this applies to the topic . . .?

    Anyway, CONGRATS! He is gorgeous! I could see him in some shade of blue . I think he'd be a fantastic English horse!

    Oh wow he is absolutely stunning! I agree with everybody who has posted, Royal Purple! A girl at my barn has a Royal Purple and Aqua halter on her horse that would look great on him(: As far as discipline goes, it's whatever you want to try and get him into! Some horses like western better than English and vice versa. ( Maybe I'm a little partial, but he looks like great hunter material to me! )

    That is really uncalled for. Im not a fan of big horses but that's because I am short and scared of falling so far. Doesnt mean I don't find the OPs horse eye catching.

    OP He is a handsome fella for sure. I myself would be weary of jumping him much. That said he looks like he could make a nice dressage or show hack horse if he has the movement that I suspect he has

    As for colours? Navy blue and gold looks very stunning on a big grey

    Phwoar to him!

    English, black tack, discreet black saddle pad. Dressage and a bit of low level jumping. And hunting obviously if there is any where you live.

    But that's just my biased opinion

    I just want to add in here that due to his size and previous injury I would be very weary of doing any extensive jumping with him. Maybe low level hunters but I would not gamble in the jumpers or eventing. He is a big horse, big boned and has had a knee injury. If he was a big boy with no previous injury that would be one thing, but due to the injury and his size I would not want to jump him much.

    That is just my two cents on the topic.

    Again he really is a beautiful boy. I would need a ladder to get on him and then would want super glue and a seat belt as I would be scared of being so high off the ground
