OTTB Conformation Critique

First off, let me say that I do not own this horse. I am looking around the OTTB market for a horse to train up for hunter/jumpers. This is his add on CANTER.

Urge Me On

It has only side shots, unfortunately, but I can't post anything here without copyright infringement. Just want to know what y'all think of him. My first-glance look is that his pasterns are long but upright, his shoulder is a bit straight, tied in behind the knee, maybe a bit sickle-hocked. He looks a bit downhill, but he is only 3 so probably still growing. Pretty well put together, intelligent eye, well conditioned and healthy.

I am no conformation expert, though. What do you guys think?

I don't like his legs at all. Too thin, especially those cannons.

Sickle hocked comes across right away. Not bad but some.

Not a bad horse really. Very much a Thoroughbred. What would you like to do with him?

I actually like him very well.
A bit sickle hocked, but unless I see him move I couldnt tell you if it was a complete turn-off to me. I do like his neckset, he should naturally want to carry his head lower.
Overall appearance is very nicely built - definitely TB, but not a gangley baby in build either. He is going to grow a bit more so while I think downhill may stay somewhat, he will likely level out a little bit. Still going to finish developing as well.
