2 year old colt confirmation

Hello all! I am new to this forum and I was hoping for some input on this colt?

He's just shy of two years old and in the year I have noticed he has a dip at his withers seems a little odd. Could you give me some input is it a muscle thing or what are we looking at.

Thanks in advance Josh

Looks like he may have a swayback due to a conformational flaw. Unfortunately that's not a muscling issue, its structural.

So what does this mean for his future? As a working horse?

Well, if that's what it is, it doesnt look that bad. So depending on the severity of it, he could work as well as any normal horse. Id make sure his saddle and pad are very specific to his needs, so that may be difficult.

He's young and still growing. It could get better, worse or no different as he matures and develops. I'd have him assessed by a vet before doing any backing with him though. Just to be safe.

I've seen way way worse and the horses work well. Just depends on the horse.

I couldn't really tell much from the upside down pics. Turn them over and I'll take a look.

To me it just looks like he is growing and is in that awkward downhill stage, hopefully he will even out!
