In certain shows it is considered acceptable to show a TWH standing square, but the parked position is the traditional look. So long as a park isn't overdone, or improperly done, I think it is fine. The horse should never look like a sawhorse, with a swayed back and front legs extended beyond the chest. Unfortunately, you do see this sometimes. In most breeds you can find extremes, and the TWH is no different.

Most of the good ones are well proportioned. It takes a tremendous amount of driving force from the hindquarters to gait properly, and a powerful pulling, lifting and reaching shoulder as well. I have a few with a tremendous amount of muscle mass for their size. Of course, there are some with a leaner look as well, just all depends on the horse and it's genes and conditioning. I think the general population underestimates what awesome athletes the TWH really is, or can be.
