Building Muscle

What are some excercises you like to do to build muscle on a horses topline. I've been working at getting his weight down and now I can see how little muscle he truly has along his back.

I need some ideas please. Thanks!!

Trot, trot, trot, interspersed with trotting. Trot in straight lines, circles, serpentines, fast, slow, up hills, down hills, all around hills. If you don't have hills, it's okay, try some trotting.

LSD! Long slow distances. I do this once a week with my show horses, as it is a very intense work out.

4 - 5 miles a day if he's up to it. Trot twice as far as you walk. You can lengthen the distance if the horse is up to it, which he eventually will be as he gets stronger and the muscles develope. Make sure you have a well fitting saddle, or a sore back will soon develope with that much riding over time.

Trot like everyone else said. If you working on the top line. You should throw in some backing your horse and having them plant there butt and move they front that will help work on the butt.
