What do you think of this horse's conformation? Swayback? High withers?

Would you call this swayback or just high withers or both?
Would you consider it bad enough where he should be ridden less or by a light rider?
Any other advice?
Thank you!

Looks mre like a high whither. I dont see much of a junters bump, just a longer back. Mine looked much the same until we started working on building a topline.
