I love a back like this. VERY strong coupling (tho someone will come on and claim a roach back but it isn't really.. just very strong). His croup is not so much flat as his tail set is high. He has knife withers.. in the last photo so saddle fit is going to be difficult.
This sort of back, while very strong, is not very supple in dressage work. It is a bit difficult for a horse built like this to curl his hind legs under him, but with practice can be done.
I like this horse. Good bone, good look and a very strong coupling.
