My horse has a hunter bump as well, I don't think he got it from working too hard as I had him since he was born. I could see it developing as a long 2 yr old & by the time he was 3 & under saddle, it was there. However, when he is in heavy work, showing, etc, you can barely notice it, as his topline is muscled. During winter when I can't ride regularly, sometimes he has a 2 month layoff, it's more noticeable again. After about a month, it's not noticeable. It's still there, but the muscle hides it.
