Possibly found a new horse, critique his bloodlines and confirmation!

As some of you know, I've been looking for a barrel horse/prospect. I found this guy! I thought hey, may as well ask. And she told me about him, sent videos, the more I like him ! He's got a good stop, animated gaits without being jittery, and can tur. On a dime. He's a 5 year old AQHA registered buckskin gelding, 15.1 hands tall, a bit spooky at time but he's young so it's understandable. He is being ridden in a tie-dow. Which is why I think hos neck is how it is, trust me that tie-down will be no more. Ok guys, tear him apart!

He has a VERY LONG ewe neck. Idk if it's making him back look really short or if it is indeed really short. I'm not into him he doesn't seem balanced:/
Maybe someone else can shed some light on him

Him, and I know the ewe neck is there. But as I said, he's ridden in a tie down

I don't think a tie down will cause an ewe neck. It's really bad..

Without being square the horse has muscling on the underside of their neck, a little bit of a pigeon breast, long neck but it works for his conformation. Steep croup but nice slope to shoulder. Love his face shape, tail, and mane. Pretty good topline and nice wither.

Don't like how he's not using his back in the free cantering photo.. and you can really spot the steep croup as well.

I would get a PPE just to make sure.

I see a lot of bracing as well while being ridden and also freely so may need some work on loosening up. I see a project.. how old?

My most recent mare I owned had a bad ewe neck from bracing against the tie down, once I taught her to carry herself right it got a lot better. Lol and ok :)

He's only 5, and he is slightly spooky which could be why he was bracing going over the bridge.

Would be much happier with some body work and flexion work as well.

That is my plan, to gain some flexibility, muscle, and balance. Then he'll be put back to work on barrels
