This one is the most recent. The first photo bareback is when I very first got him about three weeks ago, this photo here is just a few days ago

When I said about the finger measurement, I left out that this is done on the withers to be sure the gullet isn't pressing down on the bone. I was able to enlarge the pic a bit and wasn't seeing a sway back.

IMO, the saddle may be too narrow from looking at the height of the pommel, but I can't say for sure.

Your horse is not swaybacked. I own the 'queen' of swayback...lol

Haha yeah he's not really "sway back" in real terms, but with his whither looking so much higher than his back to me, it gives that illusion...

Yeah its not pushing down or even touching his whithers, I feel like it mainly slides because of the angle from his whithers to and down the curve of his back.

Also he isnt technically sway back, but it seems that way with the angle of his whithers to his back, kind of gives it that look but I know he's not actually sway yet
