Question Confo. Critique on AQHA gelding in Halter Class

This is my AQHA show horse Joe's Hot N Vegas. This was a halter class at an open/AQHA show. Please critique on his confo. And eye appeal. Thanks!

He's gorgeous!! I love love bays!

For his confirmation (not that I'm any sort of expert) he struck me instantly as being built really downhill. I know that can be a quarter horse-y thing and I don't know if it would count against you in a halter class (totally clueless) but it stood out to me.

He's very good looking though and obviously well loved and cared for! I love the first picture!

Thank you! I like the first pic too. I am looking at his tail to make sure his tail extension wasn't falling out, I am horrible at putting them

Oh! I was going to ask if it was naturally that crimpy!

Nope, I think I just forgot to blow dry it..opps:)

He is pretty- I think his shoulder looks a little out of whack, and I think it might be because he isn't quite stacked up square in the front. He looks a bit stretched out to me and out of balance.

Love bays!

He is horrible at squaring up. He might have been a little stiff it was a long trailer ride for him...3hrs and me:)

I bet that is what it is. He looks like a very good boy and has such a kind sweet expression and a soft eye. And you have done a beautiful job fitting him for show!

Thank-you, he's a good boy, most of the time:)

He is too stretched out. It is up to you to make sure he is standing underneath himself with his front legs. Moving his front legs back by about 6" will make a whole different picture for a judge to evaluate.

Lose the gloves. Add some bling earrings, and perhaps a bright colored shirt under your jacket. There's just too much black going on. You need something that will give you some "pop".

The halter can be tightened up a couple holes. The noseband should be moved up to his jowels. Looks like you have a couple of inches of space to move the halter farther up on his face.
