9yro TB gelding

Can I get a confo critique on this gelding please? He is a 9yro, obviously off the track. He'd be used for mostly pleasure riding, possibly low level eventing.

Big shoulder on him, which makes his neck too tiny in comparison, but it's got a decent angle to it
Nice depth of girth
Long cannons & pasterns but otherwise his front legs look ok
Prominent wither but it seems fairly level with his point of croup, which is good
Back is boarderline long
Nice square hindquarters
Back legs are just a tad posty and again, long pasterns
Overall he's a decently put together horse. Nothing a little muscle and time can't fix

Thank you lilruffian. He definitely does look a little posty behind, more so in the second photo than the first.
