Critique School Horse?

Hey everybody, I need a conformational critique on this horse I would like to bring with me to college the returning semester. I'll be using him for intermediate training. I've been working with him over these last few summers, but if I can get an idea on what you all think of his conformation, that would be great! :) Be as harsh as you like!!

He's a quarter horse, by the way, but I'm not sure of his age.

He looks a little long-necked to me and it looks like he has short legs,but as soon as I saw him I fell in love with the dapples on him!!! It looks like her has a kind eye :)

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Thanks, ridergirl23! Everybody always loves his coat. :) I agree, he is rather short but he reminds me of those old type of foundation quarter horses that were on the shorter side. And yes, he's a very gentle boy and on the lazier side. ;)

Haha! Yes, I'll be using him for western riding. I'll be using him in our Intermediate Training class. Its designed for green broke horses that need some touching up. He's already broke, he just needs to work some more on the fundamentals.

I'm attending my last year at Black Hawk College. There's an East and West campus and the East campus has the equine program. :)

Bahaha! I wish I could have him in my hands right now! :) He's at his owner's place until I take him with me back to school. That halter is so old! I found it among some of his tack and it was all dusty and when I took these pictures, I thought they'd fit the picture! :)

He is slightly higher hipped than he is at the withers, and his shoulder is a little upright, and ties into a short cresty neck. He's also slightly too upright in his hind legs.

Otherwise, I rather like him...nice expression, decent movement, and for the most part well put together.

He does need a diet, though...lol!
