Hancock bred gelding critique please

Breed: AQHA
Sex: Gelding
Age: 5
Pedigree: allbreedpedigree.com/LZM+Toby+Hancock
Pics: photobucket.com/LZMTobyHancock

I was given this horse as a project after about 5 years without riding. I have around 22 yrs. exp. with quarter horses, and I would like to use him as an all around horse, but would like specificly to do 1st and 2nd level dressage, as I nam burnt out on cow work. ill still train for barrels and poles but i would really just like to know if he looks conformationally sound for som dressage and maybe some HUS/Jumping. I realise that he is bred and born to be a cowhorse, but I would like to hear what faults he has from others, so i can gain a better perspective on his scope of potential. thank you for your time
Additional Details

Why are haters telling me hes inbred? Arent all quarter horses inbred I know hes not linbred, i accidentally used that word and was beaten severely with words, what whats the issue, in human terms linebred is still inbred....btw i do get that linebreeding strengthens a certain line, but i dont know why, and i dont understand why inbreeding doesn't.
Here is my reining mares pedigree, is she linebred? www.allbreedpedigree.com/gamble+ona+fanny

Your gelding is neither inbred nor linebred.

Your mare is not linebred by most breeders' definition. If there were another run to Doc Bar relatively close, particularly on the bottom side, I might then consider her linebred...

Your horse isn't line bred, my horse on the other hand.. LOL. Here's an example of linebred. (she was an accidental foal)

I don't know anything about the linebred/inbred thing, but will say that I don't see anything in your horse's conformation that will prohibit him from doing low level dressage and some jumping.

People may just be looking at his pedigree and seeing every other horse named "hancock" and assuming they are all related. As he is a gelding, he is what he is and his "pedigree" is meaningless. Hancockhorses.com is a good website with lots of info on Joe Hancock and other Hancock bred horses.
