    To me it doesn't look like he's so much sway backed as he just has massive withers and no muscling on his topline to exaggerate this. His neck would also benefit from some muscling, looks a little low. But I'm no expert :)

    I will say he's pretty, pretty!! I love his eyes :)

    No doubt he has a prominent wither but he has a slight sway back, nothing to be alarmed over.

    As long as he is conditioned properly and have adequate padding on his tack he'll be a happy mount

    He has a topline, though. Not as developed as other horses but yeah.

    This would be no muscling on topline:



    This is an old photo...and my horse also has a shark-fin wither

    He is a pretty good horse. Nice bone and nice low hocks and knees. He is a bit long backed and he is a bit ewe necked and both impact his topline. Trotting up hills with you standing in the stirrups and him on a long rein will help him in that area. You will have a lot of opportunity to do that since you will be trail riding.

    He looks to have a wonderful disposition and be a great horse to work with and learn with!

    Nice horse. Really.

    Thanks! I agree Elana! I will try the troting up the hills and hopefully it improves! Can't wait to get on the trails! :)
