He was absolutely amazing, and now Rebel is faster, can turn tighter around a barrel, pivot on his haunches and forehand without even the slightest resistance. I guess he just wasn't feeling up to par before!
But now I face a dillemma: The chiro says he needs to build his hindquarters. I'm really not good and building muscle fast. Normally I just ride off and do all the excercises for my reiners and barrel horses without a second thought and they all muscle out nicely.
However, Rebel's a bit older and a touch sunk in. The vet and chiro think he can get the muscle back though with work.
So, other than the normal barrel schooling, is there anything else I can do to build his hind end muscles?
