All right, I'd love some Crit before I say 'yes this is up for beta testing'. With much help off Pharaoh I got the withers height slider working - note it can look a bit extreme with saddle on and the high high withers tends to nom the reins.
I'll put the images in as... images? once I get on a computer that can run photoshop without running out of memory but for now suffer with Jonas:
Well I noticed at another angle the withers seems to have been broadened in the area ((possibly as a result of shifting joints up)) so I'm thinking of trying to see how to 'narrow' the area without messing everything else up which should *fingers crossed* fix the issue. Other then eaten reins does the slider look 'good' or should I be looking at adding more bones in?

Well, I am no expert but this looks good to me! Narrower would probably be better. I have some Akhal-Tekes that could definitely use this instead of lowering their back so much to make the withers look prominent like they do in the breed.

Spine5 and BackNeck0 are the two that control the section of the reins, maybe editing them will help?
Edit: just tested it in Milkshape (so far it has been right for me), Spine5 controls that whole section of the reins and BackNeck0 alter the tip (the part where the buckle would be on real reins). I'd say, since you are already using Spine5, editing BackNeck0 would do the trick as it should pull up the rest.
Thanks for this research - it should actually be an easy fix then that. Spine 5 is the one that I've moved down to stop the legs floating. So I'm going to try the 'easy' route first of reversing spine 4 and spine 5's role.
I'm also going to 'narrow' spine 5 at the top to try and make a nicer wither shape
