Is it possible to get a nice round bum on a TB??

I wish Jubilee's bum was rounder. I know its lack of muscle definition, but her muscle is good everywhere else. Its just her bum. Where her croup is it kind of makes a point and then slopes down. Is this just characteristic of her breed? How can I round it out? Lol. Thanks. :P

It all depends on the horse, some are built for it others aren't. Most TB's do not have nice round rear ends however some do

This is my old girl, most who saw her thought her a warmblood or quarter horse and were astonished when I told them she was a tb.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that you can only work with what you've got, trotting up hills and deep water work is great for building up but muscle.

Thanks Frog. Wow that horse does not look like a TB at all! She has a gorgeous bum. Hehe.

Unfortunately I don't really have access to water or hills. Is there anything else that will help?

I've heard that feeding them extra so they are are a little on the fat side, but not too much. And also trotting and cantering up hills.

i agree, my gelding has the same problem but as long as I feed him extra and do LOTS AND LOTS of trotting which is the best it builds up their croup a lot. My tb now looks like a wb! Lol

We have a TB at our farm that gets literally no exercise except running in the pasture and he has a wonderful round butt. He is fed lots of hay and really good feed, but I think he is probably a bit heavy and he also probably just put together that way, but yes TB can have nice butts
