Engaging Back/Hindquarters Exercises??
So I ride western, and my mare has recently had some substantial time off due to an injury. I'm about to get her back into VERY light work. But, her topline has always been a bit of a challenge to keep in shape. I *hope* it was in part due to her Vitamin E deficiency!! So, I am wondering what are some good exercises for topline and hindquarters. I don't ride english, but if any of you english friends have something that works, share it!! Keep in mind though, my mare works off of very light contact and is very soft in her mouth....or at least she was before her accident lol I really want to keep her that way. So I don't necessarily want to keep constant contact, but I also don't want to nag her to death :/ Also, I know rollbacks and stuff are good, but I got to be really easy on her hocks. So, I need some unique ideas!! lol Thank you guys in advance!
