Hind end conformation can vary greatly depending on use. The example given is typical of what I think of as a good hunter hind end. Jumpers often have much straighter hind legs, and dressage horses can go either way.
I think a long hip and stifle location are the big constants, but when you're looking at angles of the hock for example it can vary a lot. Hunters often end up with about the angle of hip in oskoga's pictures, but dressage and jumpers will have a variety of angles (and I believe the best dressage horses will have a hip angle which varies from one photo to the next, indicating good SI joint movement.)
Are you asking specifically for hunters, or for overall good conformation?
My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.
