What kind of show should be my first?

Im aN advanced beginner/intermediate rider: I was wondering what kinds of shows and events are out there for me to try.
Im ready to move on to the next level with my horse. He is a dapple grey 2006 17hand tb gelding, and has the potential to do anything! I just dont know whats out there to try. All i know is english and western pleasure shows.. I cannot jump with him until he is vet checked, and i do not want to do anything that requires long periods of galloping.. Let me know what kind of shows i could train for. Thank you:)

By your post I can't even tell what you do with him. Do you have any one you take lessons from that could give you some guidance? I can tell you don't jump him and I doubt if you do dressage since all you know is western and pleasure. Sounds like you want to jump and he is plenty old enough so not sure why you haven't pursued that.

Well , he had an old injury about 3 years ago.. And i wasnt sure yet if he is sound to jump. But id love to jump. Right now, im working on keeping him on the rail and sidepass, things that involve lots of leg because hes just learning. I just want
To know different kinds of shows there are and see if id be interested. Like doing trails but not having to gallop the whole 20 miles lol. And we are
Working on basic dressage as well. He will pick up dressage very quickly!
