Developing an outline

Hi,
I currently have a 12.2 exmoor x
His back muscles aren't very good although I have a good saddle I have been told getting him to develop his outline and getting his weight off the forehand would help his back muscles. He doesn't use his back end very well either.

I have looked around for the pessoa training aid, has anyone had any experience with these?
I have been doing some schooling but as I don't have a specific training space just a field I'm not able to do lots of work as It gets very muddy.

Any other suggestions would be helpful thanks

Hi & welcome,

I don't personally agree with pessoas & other gadgets like that generally, or doing endless circles for the sake of exercise as a rule, as in lunging. I think it can often do more harm than good. Hill work - both up & down hills is great for developing a horse's topline & getting them more balanced on their hind end.
