Critique my paint?

This is my 15 y/o Paint gelding. We have been doing the pleasure type classes right now. I was just wondering what you guys think of his conformation? I am awful at conformation. I also have a link to his pedigree
And I can try to get more pics tomorrow

Nice! Longish back. Ewish neck, biggish 'boobs', indication of him travelling on the forehand. Maybe high heeled & bit camped under in front, and more sloping hind feet. Could indicate back probs.

I'm seeing a small roach in his back. Diddly has one too, but both your horse and mine have very mild ones so it shouldn't affect them. Just make sure everything's in order when you get his back done ;)

I wouldn't call it a 'roach', but the thoracic spine is a little low. Or maybe just because he's got a long lumbar area, or highish wither, it looks that way, or how he's standing. But then only got the one pic to go on really - can't really critique confo when saddled... except to critique the saddles being a bit far forward.

I agree much with the others. He appears buck-kneed in the front and built downhill.
Neck needs muscling but it has a nice set to it and i like the angle of his shoulder.
Nice sloping QH hindquarters
Back legs appear to line up correctly, however his hocks are rather low and he has short pasterns
