How bad is the sway back? Could you post a pic? I had a horse with a *very mild sway back and he rode ok. Its just really uncomfortable.

You mean Princess? She is only 14 or 15 yrs old in that picture
She was the losing bet in a breeding gamble, her sire was a solidly built Quarter horse with really good conformation, her dam was 1/8 saddlebred 7/8 Arabian and had decent conformation with minor faults. At least this girl has had the same home for her entire life and still goes out for mountain trail rides even now

They both have long backs, or maybe the sway makes them look longer?
