Critique this Arabian

Here is a 2 year old grade Arabian gelding I'm thinking of purchasing.
Please keep in mind that he is loping in a round pen, and still has a bunch of growing to do. He is 14h currently.
Would he make a good all-around prospect? Thanks!

He's loping in a round pen. If you want answers that will be worth anything you need to get better pics of him standing squared up.

I won't be able to get more pictures of him until later tonight. Sorry for the inconvenience.
As stated above, I'd like to know if he would make a good All Around Prospect. That means English and Western. Jumping & Eventing, Western Pleasure & Mounted Shooting. Other events as well, but those are the main ones we will try to participate in.

Just so you are aware, Arabs aren't generally noted for their jumping ability. Maybe he'll be different, but if you were wanting something that will get you high into the world of jumping and eventing, I wouldn't pick an Arab.
We also need pictures of him standing square, from in front, both sides and behind :)
Speed Racer and Elana like this.

It also doesn't help that he appears to be cross-firing in the photo. All you can really say is that he looks cute.
