I like him, but that stifle is a tad scary. Minus the weak stifle he is lovely though!!

Is it just me or does that horse have a rather long back?

Possibly, or a small rider :P

I'll be taking confo pics and a video when I go and try!

Haha - good point!

I'm used to seeing about this much back behind the saddle:

Forgive the facial expressions!!

Can't really tell if long back or not... can't see where the wither ends.

It is a bit hard to tell much from the photo's - they have angled them quite a lot from the forehand, so you can't see true lengths of the neck and back, can't see a true angle of the shoulder etc.
I don't think the neck is terribly long, going by the camera angle it is probably quite a good length in relation to the back. I also don't see a long back.
Maybe a touch over at the knee, but that could very well be the angle and the way the horse is standing, and if there is anything there, I wouldn't think it could cause much trouble as far as soundness and performance goes.

Like Anabel, the only thing I'd be really worried about is the stifles, and if you like him, I'd get those thoroughly looked at.

The long back concerns were for the second horse. =)
