I see what people are talking about I think....I think his rear looks good, and his shoulder forward looks good. His barrel area does look well padded...maybe it is something that could just be toned up a bit? I don't think that I would actively work to put him on a diet.
I think it is better for him to have a little too much padding there than too little. He does not have that look of an obese horse (the neck, jiggle butt and chest, etc.)
Maybe increase his cardio workouts some (more trotting trail rides) and see if it tones up?? Again, poundage wise, he sounds good...keep the weight, but tone it up. :)
