Generally, that's not a good thing, makes it harder to round up. I have poked around to find the actual joint (squishy area!), and while it's not lined up with his hip, it's not as far back as it seems in the picture. But he seems to compensate well, he has an awesome sit (lol, not on purpose, but eventually we'll get there) and wants to use his hindquarters well. But he still needs a lot of muscling up.
He is awfully comfy to sit and trot to. =)
And in terms of back being so straight-- was a pain to find a saddle for!
