Muscling...

I have posted a thread like this before. But have have tried what some of you have said to gain muscle..*trotting, hills, ect,* with Sunny and He still hasnt gained any muscle... and he needs ALOT.. what another things can I do.. while walking him with a leadrope... or lunging? What type of exercises can I do to help him build a topline as well? Sorry if that is confusing... Im tired and sick:/

How long have you tried?

Also all of these things have to be done by the horse properly. Sending him up a hill with his back all tight or him not relaxed will not help him gain muscle.

You feeding him a little extra so he isnt burning it off instead of gaining muscle?

You can do trotting polls-- walk them too. Do Cavalettis.. collection is key..

Building muscle happens in a number of months. It's not going to happen in a few days! It'll work just give it time

Just wonderin- how long do you trot the hills? If you throw in some walking 30 minutes a day will do your horse good.


Would you do us the pleasure of showing us a picture? Id like to see the horse if I could.

How long should I be trotting the hills. And I will show one from about September and then one from like 3 weeks ago. You will see a big difference. And he is a tad skinny now as well.:/ I had the vet out and he was on sandclear for sand in his intestine and stuff. Just wormed him. So idk why he is still skinny... ill attach as soon as I find them

You can really tell in one he looks better. It could be because he doesnt have his winter fur.. but still. I want him to look good in the winter to.. and he is starting to look better.. just not as good as he could..

Have you wormed him lately? Sand belly really doesnt make them too skinny it mostly just gives them a pot belly kinda like hay or grass belly..

And if it were me- id switch up the trotting and walking-- for starters I would walk up the hills for the majority of the 30 minutes cutting in some trotting but not so much that he's overly tired..

If he needs more weight and is cleared by the vet I would talk to them about some kind of weight builder added to his diet.


--just seen the pictures.. the top one definitely wormy if that's not his winter coat.

Id have him wormed then start building his weight up then start on the topline work.. he does look just under muscled all together and that will happen with just more riding.
