    Babe was like that when I bought her and she 17 year old. Iam also training Babe on Barrel racing . She coming along pretty good just got to teach her the cue to swing her back end, to come closer around the barrel. Iam going to try and get a new pic. Of her.

    I actually don't think she's long backed at all, but I think the illusion is created because her hind end is a little smaller than her front end, and she lacks some muscle. At 17 it's not uncommon for her to getting a little sway backed but as far as her being long or short, I'd really say the length of her back is fine.

    As a side note, unless you have a horse with an exceptionall long back, carrying weight is usually not an issue.

    I think she's short,because my horse is long back and she has a shorter back then my horses.

    She looks fairly well conformed. She is slightly longer in the back than I'd like to see, and she is weak in the topline, as well, especially right to the front of her croup...she needs some gymnastics to help keep her back muscles strong.

    I would say long back, but she looks good.

    She is a little bit short backed but its not very noticable.

    I conquer but why are you asking? Is it something that is troubling you? NO horse is perfect and as long as she is sound without pain or discomfort issues and its not affecting her, it shouldn't matter. She's got some stunning coloring.
