Critique TB gelding?

Looking for critiques on this gelding. Friend is looking for trail horse, a bit of jumping. I know the pics aren't the best, but they are what they have. He is big, 17.2hh, 12 years old, has a tattoo. Going to see him tomorrow. Thanks!

I can't help too much critique-wise, hopefully more knowledgeable people will chime in. I personally like him. I don't know if it's the pictures or what, though, to me something is kinda weird about his butt. His pasterns kinda look long and his cannon bones short, but he doesn't have giant withers (which is always a plus) and he seems to be thicker built than many other TBs.

i like him.the saddled photo is a bit misleading about his hind end, makes it look very straight but in the grazing photos his hocks look good, nice angle. i like his neck and throatlatch. at his height the jumps will have to be big to even get him to lift his legs up! good luck

Decent looking horse, nothing glaringly wrong that I can see, certainly looks like he is capable & soundwise to jump.

I don't even like geldings & I would buy him in a "heartbeat". Too bad he's not in my area. I adore large Thoroughbreds & was recently looking for an easy going trail horse. I would seriously consider him. LOL

I really like him, overall, and think he's worth looking at for what she wants- although his backs are pretty sickle hocked.

Just judging by the photos, he's pretty nice.

His front pasterns appear long and pretty upright
Short cannons (good thing I've always heard)
Nice low hocks
His croup doesn't look too steep I can't tell from the photos
Good deep heart girth
And his neck ties in a little weird I think, maybe it could just use more muscle.

I think he is defiantly a nice horse, especially for what he'll be doing!
Now I'm no professional, so hopefully I did good :) lol
