I suppose it may matter to some folks and disciplines, but I think it depends a lot on the horse wrt performance. Our Paint mare Angel is fairly long backed for a stock horse, and we were told long backed horses didn't make good cutters/penners, but she wound up winning ribbons in team penning, so the horse's attitude, willingness, and 'heart' are more important to me.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
