Shoulder is very upright and neck is set high
Good depth through the girth
High in the wither and a little long in the back
Not sure if it is just the photo, but he also appears to stand slightly under himself
Short, steep slope to croup but I don't think his hindquarters are all that bad
Really hard to judge the back legs from those pictures but nothing severely wrong seems to be standing out.
Depending on his temperment, I don't see why he wouldn't be good for what you need

we are going to look at him on saturday so I will try to get more pictures. Although he may be pretty wooly. These pics are a few months old.

Other than being a little porky he looks pretty good. Take a good look at his feet. Here he looks like a bad trim job.

I like him and he will be fine for what you have planned.

the picture was taken in august and yes feet look terrible. But it was Terribly dry then and Alot of horses feet were nasty then. I was puting pine tar on my 2 every day and it barely helped.
I doubt he has had a good trim in a while though thank god I have a great farrier :)

I really like him! He looks like a nice stout, hardy guy. He should be great for what you plan on doing with him, I love his head!
