And this is improved with a gel or just a good diet/correct riding?

I've seen changes like this in my own horse within a matter of weeks..

The quickest changes are from the liniments, happening in less than a week, second-quickest from supplements, third from riding and diet which happen over about two or three weeks. If I let her hold her head higher than about an inch above withers, she tends to have a sore back after riding, so I keep having to ride light and remind her to keep a stretched, low outline. There's no soreness after rounding her back, but hollowing it causes issues. I don't think the hollowing is from resisting, I think she is just trying to use her neck to balance and over-uses the back that way, since I don't give her anything to brace against; light reins, and in half-seat my bum is out of the saddle so I'm not blocking her with my seat bones either.
