    Here are some pics after he shed out some (he has a really weird winter coat and it made his shoulders look worse than they really were). I know he needs muscle and we are working on that and he seems to be doing wonderfully. He is even getting a cute widdle neck muscle

    Yearling
    He looks alot better to me but Id stop using the side reins. They are making him invert his neck instead of reach down for the bit. You don't want him to tuck but rather lift his withers and the base of his neck by reaching down to the bit lower and contracting his belly. What those side reins are doing for him there is wrong. He needs long and low and to learn to reach for the bit.

    Yeah I know they were doing nothing for him. I have a neck stretcher as well but don't really need it while I am riding. When I am riding, I can influence him through my body really easily so he relaxes and moves better
