Building Toplines

I've always heard that the best way to build a topline is undersaddle. And that may be true, but I want to know your ways to build toplines! I've also always heard that it takes a year to properly build up a topine. Is that true for you? I understand that some people are against side reigns, draw reins and other contraptions and although I am not dead set against them I would rather not use them. So what have you guys found the best way to build up your horses topline? I'm interested in findng new ways to help build up my geldings topline! Please be friendly with one another, and please don't turn this thread into a "who's right who's wrong" argument.
