All horses have to learn how to stretch their back, mostly , example, follow the bit to the ground. If you are riding and your horse reaches for a bite of grass, can you feel his back come up? That's what you want. To rack, a gaited horse needs to do the opposite, head up and back hollowed, legs not reaching under.
My gf has a horse that had back trouble and the plan was he had some kind of acupuncture with medicine, and then on robaxin for a few weeks, in the meantime, get him to use the muscles he had been trying to avoid using.
