exercises for Ewe necked horses

Hello I would like to know several different exercises to build a horses neck up I have a Surcingle. I would also like to build up her back mucles also. This horse came to me underweight and I do not weant to ride her until she has built up more muscle in her back and neck. Her withers are slightly prominant also. Any suggestions would be great :)

No I don't have a camra She just recently got it looking over the fence so much because I moved my other horse. It looked fine before.

Good riding from the hind quarters encourages a horse to use their neck properly, ergo develop the muscles properly. So no rubbernecking, jerking, pulling, etc. It is how well you ride, that will reflect how well your horse's neck muscles will develop.

Don't restrict her neck movement in anyway, she has to figure it out from the ground. Just keep her in good shape and not over/underweight. If you ground drive her before you ride her, same rules apply.

If you could ride her I would say lots of "long and low"! Long rein, riding her from behind letting her stretch over her topline with her head and neck stretching low and out....if you can't ride I would suggest ground driving and aiming for a similar shape- if she is underweight and you are worried about riding her...lunging isn't much easier on them. It would be beneficial to get on and have very short, easy rides with the horse in a good "shape" (ei long and low to build topline) vs lunging her in circles with her body all willy nilly.

Best of luck!
