Butt Muscle

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to build muscle on my mares butt ? She was skinny when I got her 2 years ago and has really come on nice - her front end is good - her top line came up but the butt is still a bit scrawny. We do hunter and dressage so she works in frame a lot - but any ideas on specific supplement for butt muscle ?? All ideas welcomed !

Long trotting, lots of backing up (backing in L shapes and serpentines, figure eights), roll backs, and going up and down hills (forward and backward). Leg yields, etc.

I don't think there's a "supplement" for muscle, lol. Just plain hard work.

Hills are great. Try lots of uphill trotting.

If by "butt muscle" you mean hindquarter muscles, walking up and down hills are good.
And jumping, but obviously that's outside of a lot of riders scopes.

That's about it.

Lungeing on a hillside doesn't have to be steep. You have to do it in short increments to build up their stamina for it.

Like the others have said, Trotting...lost of it! We had horse a few years ago who had no butt muscle so When ever we ride we did a lot of walk and trot to help build muscles.
