A chiropractor helped my mare a lot with her being unbalanced. She had a few problems the chiro addressed that were inhibiting movement around the weak side. Also, after the chiro, putting her in the round pen and w/t/c to the left and right with a saddle on and then a very balanced rider who is not interfering helped with finding her own balance.
I also believe it is building muscle to be able to carry themselves and the rider.
While the chiro immensely helped her weak side, I still had to exercise and build up those muscles. Last year, she could only keep a canter in a hand gallop. A few months ago, she just picked up a nice slow canter because the muscles she has been building are now allowing her to be more collected.
