A shark fin wither is just that; a very prominent wither.
Would I want to trail ride bareback for five hours on either, hell no!
LOL Me either, though if you got your butt crack in just the right spot, it might hold you in place. All kidding aside, I would never ride a horse whose spine was showing. That horse would be in poor condition and should not be expected to carry anyone until it is fed and muscled up enough to do so comfortably.
High withers are not that big of a deal.
