In brief: No

You are only limited by discomfort.
Riding itself won't change or effect anything in most cases.

In brief: Not necessarily

If you are skeletally mature with a mild curve, the curve is unlikely to progress as a result of horseback riding.
You are at a statistically greater risk of back pain then the general public though and as such should observe good ergonomics, and practice core stability.
