His excellent topline has well-defined withers to hold a saddle in place, he’s strong through his loin, and he has a long hip. He has a deep heartgirth and well-sloped shoulders for good stride length. His neck is long enough to balance his movement well and ties into his chest high. His tidy throatlatch will give good flexion. His head isn’t the most refined, but this is a minor concern in a gelding. He has adequate muscle volume and tone for a performance horse.

His hocks have a good angle, enabling him to drive from the hind end. ability to drive from behind. Though he could have more definition to his muscling, he has more volume of muscle than Gelding B. pasterns. He has a lovely, soft expression in his face, but when compared to Geldings B and A, he lacks overall balance and structural correctness in his hocks.
