This is just the perfect thread for me, to add my question to. The "hunter's bump" - is that the same "bump" in the LS Joint Region that mares get, when they "dip" right before foaling, and settle down? - if so, in reality for those with experience handling mares after foaling - is it possible to "retrain" the back and abdomen musculator to lift that joint again, to minimize that "dip" where the loin meets the croup?
How "useable" under saddle will that horse be? Will it be possible to train that horse collection?
