It looks to me like he either toes out in the back, is cow kicked, or both. Also his neck looks thin in ratio to the rest of him.

yeah his neck is thin because he has no muscle, hes only just been brought back into proper work, before that he had just been doing hacks a couple of times a month.

He looks like the sweetest guy ever, who really needs some TLC. He reminds me a bit more of a QH than a TB. What will you be doing with him?

hes getting plenty of TLC now dont worry lol well ive been training him to jump, since hes never really jumped properly just been over a couple of littles ones here and there & he tends to over jump ALOT then start bucking afterwards. so im working on that with him. and just general schooling really since hes only ever done polocrosse and hacking, he works with his head up in the air (which im trying to fix) and works on his forehand so ive been doing alot of work with him. not easy though because he thinks hes a rodeo horse haha.

Well, clearly you will learn a lot from eachother! He likely bucks after the jump because he is having so much fun! :-P

Is it just me or he's a bit over at the knee?

would that explain why he trips alot then?

Over at the knee :
  • Knee inclines forward, in front of a plumb line, when viewed from the side.
  • Often a result of an injury to the check ligament or to the structures at the back of the knee. The column of the leg is weakened. Thus, the horse is apt to stumble and lose balance due to the reduced flexibility and from the knee joints that always are “sprung.”
