Building up gaskins, hips, forearms..

Yesterday I was talking with one of the trainers at the place where I board about Savanna's muscling. She pointed out several things I would never have thought of, including that she needed muscling in her buttock, gaskins, and forearms. How can I develop these muscles? The trainer suggested simply backing her in circles would help tone her bum. What other exercises can I do?

Unfortunately it could boil down to how the horse is genetically predisposed. I have two black quarter horses. One is a lean race bred horse, the other is a bull dog roping bred horse.

My two year old cutting bred filly has more natural muscle than my 25 year old race bred gelding - who I competed endurance with. He is defined, but no bulk.

Reining, primarily. She does a lot, from english to western.

Also, I understand her initial build has a lot to do with how she'll tone, but she's got the potential to get very "big". Her hips are very wide and obviously lack muscle. I know once I get her "going" she'll really fill out.
