I came across a young horse for sale (about 4) that I was considering looking at as a prospect proect/resale. He seems to somewhat have a sway back, although not severe, it is noticable. Since I have never dealt with a swaybacked horse I was wondering....
A) Is this because he's not worked and has an obvious hay belly? Would it get better with good flatwork? I ride/have ridden upper level dressage, so I have the ability to get a horse using his body correctly.
B) If it is conformational, is it detrimental to his health or ability to be ridden/worked? Or is it merely cosmetic?
I'm not sure where to put this, so I hope this is a semi-appropriate section of the forum.
