That is what it looks like to me, too.

Just DO it and be happy that you can!

Conformation, unless horse is Catholic?

Should not be an issue though.

Horses make me a better person.

LOL
Pretty sure he's not catholic!

So it might just be that he needs to grow out of it?

What are your suggestions for breaking and riding him at this point?

Could it be Lordosis? I'm probably way off but whenever I see a horse that young with a 'sway' that's exactly what my mind jumps too.

People with true credibility and integrity don't need to tell other people how great they are.

Give him til he is three to ride. You could be doing some gentle ground work now.

He looks much better right side up. He is really butt high. This could be because he is having a growth spurt. Hopefully he will grow out of it. This is a horse that could really be damaged by riding too young. I would let him grow into himself for a year. If you put a lot of weight on this back as it is now, you could mess him up. If he is allowed to mature and grow, he may be just fine.

It's hard to say whether it might be an actual fault, or if it's just a combination of things making it look that way (downhill build, large/sharp withers, upright shoulder, and standing with front end in a hole) and the pictures aren't exactly helping to make it clear...even upright.

Can you get some better photos? Here is a guide to taking better critique pix.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
