I don't know much about western sports, so I can't give advice there. But for a general confo critique, he's definitely got a cute, all-rounder type build. He looks like he's built to last a long time. He's got a long back and may be slightly downhill. His legs are put together nicely, with short compact pasterns. His croup is long and sloping. His shoulder angle is a bit steep, and his neck is just a bit thick and short. But overall he's a very decent guy! His hindquarters look really strong, so I'd say he probably has the speed for barrel racing or pole bending? From what I've seen of western pleasure horses, he doesn't really look the 'type.' But like I said before, I don't know much about western!
