Please Critique for Jumping

Here is my 16 yr old Thoroughbred Gelding. Would appreciate your critique. We are just beginning to jump and will only jump maximum 2.6 - 3 feet. Thanks!

Wow! That is one gorgeous horse and his conformation is nearly perfect, if you ask me. He is practically perfect to my eye, and he looks calm and composed, too.

You have a really nice horse!

Thank you! He is a very hard keeper but I think that I have finally got him to his ideal weight. His diet is tricky being a hard keeper and hot horse.

Very nice looking horse! MAY be a bit over at the knee, but it is hard to tell on soft footing and that is not a fault to worry over. I Love his nice low hocks and he has a very nice topline. His lumbosacral joint is set a bit far back.. but at 16 if he looks this good, don't worry over it. You have a very nice horse here.

This horse reminds me on some levels of this horse, Lonrho. I have used him before as the horse with ideal conformation. Look at the hind leg conformation of your horse and this horse. Very similar. You can see this stallion has a little better coupling (and NO he does not have a roach back.. he has a correct and very STRONG back).

BTW here is Lonrho's pedigree:

Wow they do look similar! Here is his pedigree (have to copy and paste).

His Sire was Lil E Tee who won the Kentucky Derby by upset in 1992 with Bold Ruler lines. It appears my boy didn't do so well on the track with 1 start, unplaced .
