Confirmation critique of my OTTB

I am hoping that I could get some confirmation feedback on this shot, even though I am on him. My OTTB gelding is 7 and been retired from racing for 7 month. This was his second show.

I don't know about conformation, but I do think y'all look great together!

He looks pretty good to me!
I don't see anything that stands out too much other than maybe his back legs look a little camped out.. but it could just be the angle of this shot. He looks balanced and has a nice healthy glow :)
His legs look clean, his muscling is a little lacking on his ..booty ;D but that will just take time and conditioning with a proper diet.
He sure is a cutie!

I agree with the comment that his "booty" needs more muscle and that's why I am trotting up hills, etc for conditioning.

We placed first in equitation flat class! He also got 5th in Pleasure Hunter over fences and 4th Pleasure Hunter flat.

All around fantastic day!

I am not good at specific confo critique... but I really like him. He looks pretty balanced overall, and appears to have really good legs. Not to mention, very pretty!! :)

Here's what I notice:
*Cow hocked
*Slightly over at the knees
*Hunter bump
*Maybe a little thick through the throatlatch
*Post legged
*Very upright pasterns
