*I'm really new to this so take other's critiques more than mine.*

What I see is a roached back, upright pasterns and a steep shoulder. He also looks back at the knee, and post legged.

I like the look of this horse overall though, he had a good back and a kind eye. He looks like a very good horse!

I won't be stopped. I can't be stopped.

I actually don't see any of those things. Maybe a slightly upright shoulder but I like him a lot. :)

His shoulder is actually very good.

Overall, the best one I've seen from your search - congrats and good luck!

This is a very nice horse. NICE shoulder and a nice short back. You may end up going past low levels. He has a bit of postedness behind... notably straight through the hocks. That will likely limit his flashiness in higher movements such as those required for Prix St. Georges or Grand Prix.. but I would train for it anyway.

You will got 4th level I think with this horse... and once there, well.. might as well train for the rest.

Very nice looking horse!
I love his shorter back, and he looks to have strong coupling. His underline is also longer than his top line, which is desirable. Also, like others said, he has a very well angled shoulder!
He's slightly posty, and stands a bit under himself infront, but looking at his overall conformation I don't think that will be a big deal.
