His steep shoulder and low angle of his humerus (bone from point of shoulder to elbow) looks to limit his ability to get his knees up and legs folded over fences. This is actually supported by the photo of him jumping where he has dropped his knees a bit and is not folded well over the fence.. in fact, he alsmost looks to be compensating by twisting a bit in the air. He does have enough neck set and training to use the rest of himself well over fences.
He has great bone as would be expected. I would like to see his hocks a tad lower and a more rounded and less angular hind quarter. A smoother coupling with less of a peak to his rump would enhance his look and probably his power. He might be a bit bench knee'd.
Nice horse really.
