    I have 2 horses with a bit of a sway back, my old guy Blue I've had for 13 years and it's never caused him a problem, he's in his mid-late 30's now so I've retired him but he would still go if I asked him to.
    This is him

    My other one is Legacy, I've had him for a year and a half, he does him some soreness but I don't think it's due to his sway back. He is stiff in the neck most of all. I believe his soreness is due to years of incorrect tack and bad riders although I can't be sure because he's an auction horse and I have no history on him, the vet put him about the same age as your horse.

    One of my older mares has a swayback. It doesn't bother her. I only ride bareback with her, though. None of my saddles fit her properly and she's so much fun to ride with a bareback pad I don't even worry about it. Get a chiro to check your horse's back and if you get the green light, no problem. Get a saddle fitter to help you with a saddle if you decide to go that route. Have fun!!! Sounds like you have an awesome first horse. I feel your happiness.

    As long as she is not hurting, it is fine, but I would recommend getting a chiropractor or a massage therapist out if she shows any sign of soreness.
