How is Oliver's muscling coming along?

Have a recent picture from today to compare to a while ago, would like to hear what you guys have to say. Been trying very hard to keep him going constistaintly this winter but where a couple weeks where we where rained out then froze out! Had surgery and was out a two weeks to heal from that...

Wanting honest feedback :) I won't think your being harsh

Thank you!

Today: 2/15/13:

He was so tired and I was by myself so it was hard to get good pictures, let me know if I will need better, I can get them tomorrow

Sky- just wanted to point out the recent photo is him with the saddle I will be buying for the both of us and the older photo is my trainers saddle that was far to big forme, too roomy for his shoulders and that was causing a lot of our issues cause couldn't feel as much as his movement...

Loving this saddle we are working in now! I can feel him, I fit so much better!far more stable. Just such a good change!

I can see quite a bit of improvement, although his neck looks to have stayed about the same... but then again, it could just be the clipping that's messing with my eyes. He's looking great!

Not a very pretty head, but other than that, very nice.

His haunches are starting to develop a little, though I'm not convinced that he is building up much muscle over his back, and his neck is still very weak with the telltale 'dip' in front of the withers usually indicative of a horse that is not coming over its back and stretching the neck evenly from wither to poll.
A much better shape though without that belly!

Katy, I agree, but that's just going too take a very long time with him, it's a huge confidence this with him, still can get very deffensive so just keeping it easy and simple but pushing for a little more each ride.

If I keep having rides like this week I think things will really start looking different, or so I hope!

Tomorrow we leave for our 2 day clinic, 1 st lesson tomorrow night :)
