long back?

What constitutes as a horse having a long back? Some to be are obvious, but others, I don't see. Can someone give examples?

What kind of back does this horse have?

What about this one?

Butt highness- she is most likely on a hill. Also she has Impressive in her and they have incredible muscling and she may have inherited the larger rump and that may be why.

Flat back- She may have inherited it. Her muscling or body fat may be too much that her back is just shaped that way. I'm sorry I don't exactly know. But to me at least her back looks long.

The second horse is on a hill, so she would appear downhill, but isnt.

Angel, there is no way anyone can tell she is on a hill. I was there when the picture was taken so that's how I know.

.. they are the same horses arnt they??? Confused
yes they are. But they're too different views and I just want to know.

What makes her have a long back tho?

Is this a better picture to see her back?
