Does she have a swayback or?

Hey guys,

Do you think this mare is starting to have a swayback or is it only an illusion because she's got prominent withers?

I'd love to read your thoughts! Thank you :)

Looks like a combination of prominent withers and no topline, to me. I've been known to be wrong, though.

I would not consider that Horse to have a sway back at all.

Fiouuff i'm glad to hear that she does not have a swayback, she is only 6yrs old :) I think you are right, DraftyAriesMum, I don't think she has a topline..i've been having trouble with my saddle and that might be the cause

She's not got a sway back, she's just not in good condition, no topline, peaky croup, no butt muscling, etc. Some long distance flat walking and jogging would help that real quick.

I do lots of walking trail rides with her and also lot of trot and canter, she actually is starting to get more butt muscling, I want to make her lose weight as well. The no topline I assume is because of my saddle... Those 2 pics were taken in april

Most of the "no toplines" I see are because the horse isn't/hasn't been using their back and goes along with no butt muscling for an out of shape horse. Miles will cure it. I would not want to see the mare lose any weight but would like to see her muscle up.
