Building muscles on the hindquarters
So Rebel just got done with the chiropractor, and I'm absolutely in LOVE with this man for what he did for him.
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?
Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
