Please critique my 3 1/2 year old pony

Hi guys! New here, but not new to forums. Can't wait to get more active in this forum as well.
Here is my 3 1/2 year old new forest pony gelding. He has been out of work for a few months now, just letting him have some time off after an active summer.
These pictures are from a couple days ago, as well as the videos. He hasn't been on the lunge in a while...

Videos (turn your sound down unless you wanna here my annoying voice along with my mom's ... )

Thank you so much!

That is a very nice looking pony! His conformation looks very correct.

he is 14.1... maybe 14.2 hh... my mom and I are both pretty short so that makes him look tall.

That's okay! Haha, I get that a lot when people see pictures of him... "Are you sure he's a pony???" LOL

Very horse type despite his pony breeding. A tad downhill and croup high and a little upright in the shoulder. I'm also not particularly fond of his hindquarter. But he's a very pretty fellow and I can see him in the show ring.

Thanks! He is slightly downhill right now, I think... but I believe he will grow out of it. Funny you say he is upright in the shoulder, as I have heard otherwise! And yes, he is very horse-looking. That's what New Forest Ponies are supposed to be bred to look like, so yay!

He's not hugely upright, I'd just like to see a touch more slope (I am strange, I ride jumpers not dressage, but I still like a dressage-type shoulder). That kind of shoulder conformation is very common in the ponies.

If he's 14.2 NOW he may mature to be horse-sized rather than pony-sized, even if only by a tiny margin. At 3 1/2 he does still have the potential to level out but they've done most of their growing by then so I wouldn't rely on it. But he's not very much downhill so it's really no big deal.

He's really a very nice pony and I'd be proud to have him, if he was mine.
