Ok, JubileeRose, I will try doing bends and stuff with her, and I ride her just about everyday...
Barefoothooves- No she hasnt pulled or anything, she has amazing ground manners...
Peggysue- Her diet is she gets 2 flakes in morning 2 at noon, and 3 at night and also a 1/4 can of 16% grain at night, She is not yet on grass.


Thanks for all the help I will try everything you all suggest.

I will lay money she is lacking in the essential amino acids that come with qualtiy protien... what many people (me included two years ago) don't realize is when you feed less then the recommended amount of "grain" your horse is lacking in essential vitamins and minerals ...

There's a 32-year-old Arabian mare at my barn with the exact same thing, but it's just sunken from age. Hers will never fill out.

How old is your horse?

This is what a horse looks like when they 1) don't have enough protein to build the muscle or 2) Are not moving or being ridden correctly.

Broodmares have this dip all the time, so it's not from pulling back or 'age'. It's a muscle; you can ALWAYS make it better with correct work.

I suspect this horse needs some good quality protein and needs to get off of her forehand (she is not lifting at the base of the neck, as you can see by the muscle dip!).

Could it possibly be because you've been riding her incorrectly by using gadgets to force a false headset - which has now created incorrect muscle use, and loss of needed muscle mass????????
