Critique my national show horse?

Hey y'all I would love to here what ya think of my Arab/saddle bred conformation! He is a big mover so we are working on dressage right now. He is 15'2 and yes I little under weigh.It has gain about two hundred pounds since I have had him.( I will post I pic of him a few months after having him and he had put on A LOT of weigh compared to when I bought him)This pic are from early summer but he has gain more since.You can't see his ribs any more and his bum and neck have filled out I bit more. And yes he only has one eye! Sorry I don't have the best pic but it is very hard to get him to stand still lol

He has a very long back. Its hard to say much else, you should get pics of him standing square. And hopefully with a heck of a lot more weight he'll look better now.

Thank you very much!! The first pic was takeing in March and the others were takeing in August.So in 5 months he gained all that! When I got him the lady that onwed him feed him once a day and it was just hay.He was not giveing grain ever ( I know not every one feeds grain which is fine as long as your horse is health but he NEEDED it to help keep waigh on).And was outside in a tiny dirt paddoc. The girl I got him off really ment well.She "Fliped" horses and knowing no one wanted a dead beat one eyed freack with not traning she just did not have the time or money do ride or feed him.When she bought him she had no idea he had one eye!He LOOK soo bad when I bought him! He was "Lazy" but just from the lack of food.And was just skin and bones.Now he is no lazy at all lol and he is stil gaining weight!

Green Broke
From what I can see, he's got a nice shoulder and a very handsome neck set
Front legs looks alright, though his cannons appear to be a tad on the long side
High in the wither and roach-backed
Short distance from the point of croup to the croup, but with muscle he should develope some nice hindquarters
Very hard to say anything about his back legs without him standing square

He is very handsome. The added weight looks GREAT! For your next step you should try to put muscle on his rump, to make it a little rounder, as of now it looks like he just has a very steep croup. But still, very pretty.

The picture of his head shot ugh.. that is a wall hanger! Just love that shot!

He has that gorgeous Saddlebred neck; long, thin and shapely. I really like the Arab/Saddlebred cross, they really are some nice horses. Once you finish getting the weight on him, he's going to be really nice.
