Why would anyone want to ride a razor back horse?

There is one woman at my barn that has one and seems to enjoy riding it, I'm fairly new to riding but everything I've heard of the ride is that its pretty unpleasant.

Are you suggesting someone has a skinny horse and is riding it? Not sure what your point is as I am still lost on "razor back" as a term of a horse. I thought those were pigs. Ha ha

Em it's not really different... Just get a saddle to fit and then when you work on muscles and feed it up its back will be normal. Mabey I'm thinking of the wrong thing? I'm thinking The same as you Inga... just a skinney horse it's no different to ride...

I'm not exactly sure what is it but I think its that the withers are more "coming out" of their back

Do you mean Roach back?


Or Sway back?



Or just really high withers?
