Mustang Critique please!

I would like a few opinions on this 3 year old mustang's conformation. Do you think he would do well with basic dressage?

He looks quite straight through the shoulder to me but that may be the angle, they're not ideal really for critique. He should be ok at low level dressage.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Yes, I was sort of wondering about that shoulder... his neck looks like it might be sort of shortish too, but I'm not sure. I love his topline for the most part however.

I'm glad you think he's cute Ella!

Basic dressage yes. I think he's really cute and don't see anything glaringly wrong with his conformation.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

He's far and away the best looking mustang I've seen. Where is he from? He looks like he's taller than most mustangs as well. I would think he can do whatever you are horseman enough to teach him.

I didn't think he had a straight shoulder, I must be measuring from the wrong part. I thought this was how to tell shoulder angle. I put yellow dots because I couldn't draw a straight line. If anyone could correct me I would really appreciate it!!

I don't think he has a straight shoulder.
Based off this picture below of another horse your mustang's shoulder angle leans more towards the 'ideal angle'.

I also agree that he'll be good for basic dressage.
