Is she fixable? If it is training, yes. If it is a sore back.. maybe. It will take a lot of time.. lots of hills.. lots of work at transistions and balance.. getting ther to curl her rear under her, lower her head, relax her neck and work off her hind quarters.
exactly. I guess what my concern is that the OP isn't ready for that kind of work. Unless she is going to be in full training with a qualified trainer, this horse isn't going to get any better given what these videos show.
