Question building topline/ neck muscle, the thing is...

Hi everyone !

My horse is lacking muscle in his neck, the rest of him is quite nice but his neck is on the scrawny side.

I know breeding and things have a lot to do with it, but there is no hurt in exercise !

Now EVERY thread I have read talks about pushing him into the bit, working from the hind end and lifting in his withers. "low long work" and such, however, I do not ride him english and in western , we do not want our horse to learn to ride into the bit, but its actually quite the opposite.

SOO, I was wondering if anyone had any neck/topline muscle boosting tips/ exercises that my horse and I can use in our discipline of riding ?

Please help. Thank you !
