Horse Racing/ewe neck horses - problem


ewe neck
ewe neck  
hello ma'am. i believe that horses with ewe neck find difficult in engaging their hind quarters. am i right?

You are somewhat right if the horse is unschooled.  With proper training / schooling any horse can be taught to engage his hind quarters. Engagement of the hind quarters require the horse also round it's back not just bow the neck and lower its head.
