Running bred QH confo critique

I know he lacks muscle. Please tell me if you see any major structural flaws based on this photo...best I got. Please keep it considerate as the horse is a potential purchase. Thanks in advance! He legs are straight in the front and in the back.

Not a very good photo for a critique. Shoulder looks upright, tied in at the knee, topline and croup appear ok. Balance, neck length and tie in, hind leg can not be assessed because of the way he is standing. I think he is probably worth a closer look.

What is your planned use of the horse?

The two tings that stand out.......short pasterns (esp the rear) and a little calf kneed (aka back at the knee). Looks like a typical working type QH. Nothing horrible conformationaly.

Agreed... Very short and upright rear pasterns. Overly straight through entire hind leg. Depending on use could lead to unsoundness. General use weekend trail horse probably fine, high impact sports (barrels, poles, etc.) I would probably pass.

He REALLY doesn't look running bred to my eyes... LOL.
