I'ld say probably another 100 lbs too & work on building up his top line. He looks 100% better!

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Hills, backing up, riding collected

He's gotta carry himself properly to work the topline. Hills work for the hind end too..

I wouldn't worry about muscle until you have enough of a fat layer to start turning the chub into something useful.

It is important he gets exercise though.

Stretches (and muscle building) for your horse

But not until he has enough weight, missy! You can do the stretches and massaging though.
