|having post hocks will mean a rough ride in western pleasure. yes, he will not be able to get his hind legs up under him enough for correct collection. now this is my personal opinion so please do not take it as gospel. I would not keep him a stud because of his hocks. I like 'em deeper. He would make a killer gelding in the show ring for sure.
now since you are thinking about keeping him for jumping, he'd problably work great for you but his hocks will keep him from achieving that correct collection and reach.
I've started an exercise program.
I do 20 sit-ups each morning.
That may not sound like a lot, but you can only hit that snooze button so many times
