Critique 13 Year old APHA gelding

This is Jack, a friends horse I'm currently riding due to her having knee surgery, was just curious how he looks. We've been working on his weight, he's been removed from a boarding situation and now under my total care and has gained quite a bit back already.

Base narrow, front and back. Sickle hocked. weak coupling, sagging . long back, upright shoulder, very short upright , short pasterns, short canon bones, decent hooves.

I would say that this horse has a hind end that is weak, and the way he stands ,seen from the rear view, with his hocks outward and his hind feet closer, that he is not very free in his movement.

This horse looks to be sickle hocked and maybe a little close behind and in front. His hind pasterns look quite upright, upright shoulder. Decent length of neck, with a high wither and long back. In the first two pictures it looks a little like he's ever so slightly leaning back on his heels. But I have a feeling that's just me.

It does very much feel like he's 'stiff' while riding, and he defiantly has no power from his rear end.
