3 yo prospect critique please

I would like feedback on this horses conformation for lower level dressage and possibly getting into lower level eventing down the road.

He has great overall conformation. Nice neck, strong hindquarters, and well-formed pasterns. I'd like to see a deeper heart girth, but his isn't too bad, and his gaskins seem somewhat weak, but overall, he's decently put-together.

I do see the weakness now that it's been pointed out, thank you. I put in an application to see if they will consider me as an adopter. We shall see!

I like him overall. He could use a smiiiidge more muscling in the butt but that will come with conditioning and good rides :) He looks like a keeper to me!

I think he was adopted because he's off the sight. Glad he found a home :) I am still waiting on my application. Had to add some strands of fencing to meet their requirements, got that done and my photos of it sent in. So hopefully all my references are staying by the phone as instructed cuz they listed a few more and gave a sneak peak on facebook of one in progress.
