Cool bowing back end

my horse for ever bows to the right on the back end when riding so his left back leg meets his right front leg.
does anyone know of any exercises to straighten his back or something would be a great help.
many thanks !!

Pictures both at liberty and with a rider. I'd always think rider/saddle first.

If anything, it could be conformation flaws and over reaching. He's hitting his front leg with his back leg, that's over reaching. His back or hips could be out of place if he's hitting his front leg with the opposite hind foot, but we won't know anything without a video or pictures. It could also be that he's being ridden that crookedly. We have nothing to go off of so we can't give you a solid opinion.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

How does he move loose in the pasture running around? WTC? Than take more video of him WTC with a rider. A good side conformation shot wouldn't hurt either.
