Harleywood, the new pictures seem to indicate he has very high wither, short back, long hip and shoulder, nice pasterns with good slope and length, and short front cannons. Personally I would work on building up and strengthing his back, this will help to compensate for his conformational shortcomings. Of course, preferred conformation is dictated by discipline. What works for a draft or carriage horse is not what you prefer in a reining or gymkana horse. Educating yourself is the best way to acheive success in your goals. Best Wishes.
