Well, overall I like him. I suspect he may feel alittle rough under saddle because of the way he is built, but you may be used to that. The only things I see off about him is: he is a tad bit sickle-hocked, his pasterns and his shoulder are a bit upright, and his neck is a bit thick from his mane line to the tie-in at the chest. The problem that the neck could cause is a bit of loss of flexion in that area. He might not "bend" as well as someone would like. The sickle-hocked is relatively common and doesn't usually have problems associated with it, he just might not win a halter class because of it. His pasterns and shoulder being upright is not really a problem either, it just might make him a little rougher to ride. His hocks are also pretty high which is common in Thoroughbreds, but it also makes for a rougher ride. Overall, I like him. If you are not uncomfortable riding him, than fantastic. He looks like a nice boy and I wouldn't kick him out of my barn.
