A few months back my chiro informed me that my horse's left shoulder wasn't quite as muscled as his right, so we set to work evening out that muscle tone. The good news is that it worked! But the bad news is that we did not do enough stretching of that muscle and now he is a little tighter than usual when flexing to the right (stretching the newly-muscled shoulder).
We do carrot stretches (in the saddle and after a workout while he's still warm). We flex on the circle at all gaits. We do shoulder-ins & outs at the trot. Still a work in progress! When we are moving to the right, I really have to get him on my inside leg to maintain a decent bend (especially into and at the canter!).
Does anyone have advice on building better flexibility through that shoulder? Any movements that are particularly good? Or should I just keep on keepin' on?
Thanks in advance!
