Exclamation Does he look like he could Event?

Take a look at my gelding's conformation, anything that sticks out? What discipline do you think his body type fits with? This was taken about 2 months ago. He is a 8 year old Kisber Felver gelding, 15.2hh.

any horse with enough heart and a love to jump can do the lower levels of eventing! :)

He looks really camped under in front, it could just be how it's standing, though.

Lower levels he would do fine, just keep an eye on how his legs look. That particular trait (camped under in front) can cause extra stress on tendons and ligaments and make him more prone to tears/lesions on his tendons.
