I think overall he is a pretty decent looking fellow. Nice shoulder angle and length of neck. He has typical TB high withers and light bone. He looks like he needs a hoof trim, which might help his pastern angle. In the side shot his pasterns look quite upright and do not match his shoulder angle. He is standing quite sickle hocked in that photo too, though it could be just the photo. He needs more muscle throughout, especially his hind end and topline.

he looks like a really kind horse. running barrels were the last thing I was thinking to have him do. I agree with the others about his pasterns and that sport. I would have to see him move but any horse can do low level dressage and I think it benefits them in flexibility anyway. Also for the hunter I would have to see him move. If he steps long and low in his trot more toward hunters... if he has a higher step more dressage. He seems like he would be a good all around lower level english horse. If you start to jump him, take it slow.
