Fine for the breed. I think?

Yep, he looks like a STB to me . Lots of slow hill work would help him to build some more muscle there.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Look all right to me. . . (but I'm no expert!) Not drastically anything wrong.

yep they look fine to me, not superduper muscly but still good, I agree with smrobs about the hill work for building muscle, lots of trotting is great too, and trotting up hills lol!
