Glad you are enjoying your new horse, but there's something wrong with his back end. I would get him to a vet and have him assessed - lameness test or xrays or something, because he's not "right" back there.
I think it is his hind right.
I think you can turn this boy around beautifully if you took it slow. Go back to basics, OOOBER tons of long and low work - getting him to track up and move under himself, lifting his back, riding back to front and having him build that topline.
Riding inside leg into outside rein. Lots of hill work, and trot poles, raised trot poles.
But first - address that back end. I wouldn't be jumping him until you get that figured out first.
Love the pink - real men wear pink *wink* King and Nelson can start a new trend!
