Top Line?

Okay, I hear top line referred to in this section and I am not 100% what a top line is. Can someone explain and maybe show a horse with good top line and a bad top line ? Thank you all :)

It's when a horse carries his neck and head level with his withers.

Read this, it's a great article. Horse Topline Talk with Bob Avila

As far as I'm aware, top-line refers to the muscles running along the horse's neck and back, and "good" topline is a mix of conformation and how well the horse is muscled, yes? If I'm wrong feel free to correct me!

I think pics to show good vs. bad topline would be great! I'm not real good at picking what's good and bad when it comes to topline yet.
