As far as what to show him in, try a bit of everything to see what you enjoy the most together. A lot of 4-H clubs host open fun shows that are ride all day for a low price and ribbons only. I take all my greenies to a few of them for their first trips out before spending more money on breed shows.
Tack- don't let yourself get hung up on color. Find what fits him and you the best. I don't show in it but my fave saddle to ride is 75 yrs old and has a naked woman riding pegasus tooled into the seat. I take it trail riding, big conversation starter and earns me cred with the hubby's buddies LOL!
Colors- I am a huge sucker for royal blue on a grey.
