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!

I think you have 3 things going on ......a high wither a lower back and a hunter bump.

How old is the horse????? He looks well used!

Looks mre like a high whither. I don't see much of a junters bump, just a longer back. Mine looked much the same until we started working on building a topline.
