I'm not familiar with the term 'roach backed'?
Hm..I thought he looked downhill. Maybe that's why his gait isn't as smooth as our other horse? I got on Rowdy just for a few minutes bareback and I could feel the difference.
We're working on getting some more muscle on him. I don't think he was worked much with his previous owner, so I'm trying to muscle him up! The nearby trails have some hills I'm hoping will help :)
I'm not so good at the critique thing so I always look at everyone elses horses in the critique section to get an idea haha Thanks ;)
