I don't believe that any conformation flaw can be truly fixed by conditioning, but certain imperfections can certainly be hidden or at least made less obvious when the horse has good muscle tone. Ewe necked horses will always be ewe necked, but proper conditioning can make it fill out more and give it a nicer shape. A horse that doesn't have that genetic flaw never will, even when he's out of shape.
