Oh, I wasn't trying to pass judgement on whether or not that is a good standard; my knowledge of APBT conformation is pretty much the same as my knowledge of nuclear physics. But it doesn't seem contradictory to me, as the OP implied, because it sounds like what I (tried) to draw.

To me, the standard describes four very distinct parts of the body (withers, back, loin, croup).

That's how I read it, too. I think it definitely CAN be confusing if you're reading it quickly and there are all these up/down/straight/arched/etc words in there.

The only bit I thought was odd was "inclines very slightly downward" - I'd reword it as "slopes very slightly downward" since incline is generally understood to be sloping upwards.

I'm not a horse person but I read it the same as you. To me, that is what is meant by those terms.
