Smile your opinion of his confirmation would be appreciated!

Charlie is a Belgian cross who I ride as a pleasure mount on the trails and roads, as well I use him for Field Hunting. He is 7 years old, 17.3 HH. Wonderful personality. I think he is very well put together, but then I am not terribly objective. Would love to hear others opinions.

Hes a Beaut. Im not really familiar with the draft breeds but he looks very well put together to me.

Since there is only one conformation shot and I can't see below his pasterns, this isn't the best critique, but what stands out to me is that he has a longer back that I like, with what appears to be a bit of mutton withers- but overall a very nice, study all-arounder. He's very hansome and looks to have good movement!

Nice looking horse, first off. A bit long in the back, and a rather steep shoulder, but other than that I agree with Endiku and he is a very handsome fellow!

Thanks, I think he is pretty handsome too lol. He is such a pleasure to ride, smooth, jumps effortlessly and has a very good mind while out fox hunting

He has a long back, yes, and the withers typical of draft breeds. He is well put together and very handsome and must be a joy to ride! I am now riding occasionally an Irish draft/draft cross who is about the same size, maybe a bit smaller. He, too, is really fun to ride and jumps like the wind (with his owner, not me)

I love his color and he has a very beautiful neck. The only faults I find are his long back (I do like slightly shorter more sturdy backs) and he could use more muscle definition in his shoulders and upper front leg muscles. Other than that, he is gorgeous! I just adore draft breeds. The bigger the better to me! :)
