I'm just worried about his knees having problems and his back not being able to come round. Also his back leg looks very straight. Is it too straight to handle collection? I might only go to second level and do eventing with him.
You don't need a warmblood to do 3rd level dressage, but even in a TB you can do much better conformation wise. My QH is a fantastic little dressage horse- you just need to look until you find what you want. Pass on this guy if you truly want to have a 3rd level (or even second level) dressage horse as you next horse is my opinion.
