Well, drawreigns can help, but that's for the trainer to decide. Looks like you are on the right path, an nothing to worry about, if he has a nice fitting saddle, and is working then you will get there - he is young :):):) just keep at it ;)

He looks fine to me...some horses have a high wither and others don't. His conformation is what it is. Sure, some exercises can help with building top-line but there's nothing to be done about a high-withered horse. My Arabian is also high-withered. It just means I have to be super careful with buying saddles as she only fits a narrow gullet with a round skirt. I would not be using draw-reins without expert help...and I don't like them particularly.

I knows he's always going to have a fairly large wither its just I think he could gain more muscle around it and his back. My trainer has ridden him in draw reins numerous times and so have I, so no worries there. (:
