Yay a gaited breed I am familiar with! I trained a PP, easiest horse ever to train, but I was bored quickly with the paddling & the weird canter, but smooth city for sure. Ok your boy, could be just the picture, but he has no "brio", as these horses tend to have a common head, they need that presense to pull it off and make that head look like it belongs. He has an upside down neck, but his shoulder is perfect for the breed, slants nicely and long! Nice heartgirth, his back is on the long side, croup is sloped nice. Now onto the worst part of this horse & it's breed in general, the hind end, it's angulation makes this breed very suspectible to hock problems, I was told by the breeder it's common, sorry cannot remember the name she called it. Anyways, I was told not to ride a PP on hills & mountains, but gee, these guys are from Peru, the Andes? Hello? Oh well, just passing on the info. I am sure your horse is as smooth as silk and his coat is very slick. Again, could just be the picture, maybe once under saddle, he arches his neck, paddles, and is full of "brio"!
