Any chance you can get better photos? He is standing wide behind, but I doubt that is his normal stance based on the first photo, where if anything he looks slightly cow hocked (just going to show how much angle of photo and stance can impact the way a horse looks). He has a long shoulder that appears will laid back, withers are placed far back on the body, neck ties in a bit rough but would look 100 times better with good muscling, bone is light and he is slightly tied in at the knee, as well as slightly back at the knee. Pasterns appear a bit long, but not an ideal photo for evaluating them. Hind end does look somewhat concerning (not because he is standing wide either), but without better photos it is not fair to critique him. I get the feeling like he is 'out' in the back end - like he may have some soreness there. He has a bit of a hunters bump and fairly flat croup (I think), but once again the slight angle of the photo makes it impossible to accurately say what this assessment could change with additional photos. I would strongly suggest a PPE with this one. Not the most athletic looking horse right now, but with lots of proper work to build topline and neck muscles he might look much better. Legs would be of some concern to me for jumping.
