Well that is awfully young for a swayback. He probably has had an injury and/or nerve damage. His back will probably be weaker than normal and I doubt he could take a rider. He might be able to drive if he is brought along slowly. He needs to build a lot of muscle control. Have your vet check him for physical damage. You could also try an orthopedic vet or chiropractor.

I would like to see a pic. When you post a question, there should be a button to upload a photo - click 'browse'.

Good luck!
