    One Rider=More Muscle?

    My horse Jerry used to be a school horse, or a lesson horse, which meant he had several different people riding him throughout the week. He never had much muscle then, and he always seemed tired after I rode him.

    It's been about two and a half months since I bought him, and I'm already starting to see a great increase in his neck and hindquarter muscles.

    Why would he be getting more muscle now that one person is riding him instead of a lot of different people? Can someone explain?

    I'm sure it has more to do with the type/severity of activity he's doing now as opposed to before. If he had several beginner lessons a week, he's obviously not going to gain any muscle. If several good riders were riding him throughout the week, he'd likely gain the muscle.
