Exclamation Confo? Swayback? hes only 8 yrs old

I own the best horse in the world( according to me). His name is Dexter and he is a rescue horse. 8yrs old, 15.1hh and a tb. He was super super skinny, then was perfect with a weight builder and then summer came and he gained a bunch of weight. But I am most worried about peolpe saying he has a swayback or how he might be forming one. He wasnt used in any overworking lessons or anything before I got him. He was kinda a pasture horse and now (after a year) he gets worked 4x a week. PLease tell me if he has bad confo!!

I'll second the welcome, but we can't see your pictures when you link them from FB. Can you attach them from your computer hard drive? Or maybe upload them to a 3rd party site like Flickr or Photobucket?

No matter what anybody has to say about his conformation, he is your horse, and you love him, right? I personally don't think he looks swaybacked at all. He has moderately high withers, which are accentuated in the picture where he is looking away, but nothing that I would find alarming (I'm not an expert though). If he makes you happy, and he's happy, sound, and going well with you, then he's perfect.

Thanks so much. I just got really scared of hearing people say he might have a sway back by 10 or how he had bad confo. He feel in a ditch when he was 6 and messed up his spine making his right side completly stiff. I sill ride him and it doesnt hold him back but I wanted to know if maybe he had bad muscleing after that. Thanks thou.. Your words are completly true, becuase I really value him above all else. :)

I do not think he is swaybacked at all, he just has high withers.

I have seen a lot of truly swaybacked Horses in saddle fittings, yours is not.

Great job in his recovery, he looks great

If I saw that horse I would say, "There is a good looking TB".
