I don't think light riding will do any harm, probably best to keep her active. I hope everything works out:) very prety girl!!!

Okay, great. We usually ride for 30 minutes to an hour every other day and she hardly breaks a sweat.

And thanks everyone for the compliments! She's the biggest horse out here (in height anyway) so she is my bossy girl. :)

When I first got my mare she was a little underweight and she had a dip right there. I think that is normal for that structure to show when the horse is underweight. There is a dip there naturally, it is just normally covered by muscle.

However, your girl doesn't look thin, so I'm not sure what that means. But take a look at skinny horses and their backs all have that little dip there. So why it shows on your girl, I'm not sure. But I think every horse has that dip there in their spine and it normally only shows when they are underweight.
