His front end is OK - decent front legs, decent shoulder. He does have an ewe neck and muscling under his neck, but once he's ridden (IF they ride him correctly) that problem could be eliminated.
The problem you're seeing but are unsure of is that his gaskin is too long, especially when compared to his forearm. Another poster mentioned his pasterns are long - and they're a bit longer than his forearm but not bad, the issue is the gaskin. (A gaskin is #46 in the picture at this link).

That length means he could not be used for jumping and stay sound. You'll have to be careful when he's worked - he may not remain sound with regular work.
You'll need to build up SLOWLY the muscle in his rear end. Good luck.
