Sorry. Please remember that the only thing I know about your horse is a handful of photos on the internet, and that is not a complete picture by any means. I would be soliciting my vet's, farrier's and trainer's opinions as well, and giving them a lot more weight that a random stranger's on the internet.
Also, I don't see any reason not to take him out at lower levels and see how he holds up. The thing that concerns me most from the photos is the apparrent swelling and/or thickening in the fore ankles and suspensory area. So if I were conditioning him to event, I'd be a little obssesive about checking those areas for heat, swelling or any changes. I'd also probably be a little fanatical about leg care in general.
With his confo, ANY discipline is going to create wear and tear, eventing is just going to create it more quickly.
