The way he looked in the vdeos...do you think that will help him regain his topline?
From what I saw, he is on his forehand. You need to get him engaging his hind and and rocking back to work off the hindquarter. Lots of stopping, backing, and then moving forward into a trot or canter (right off the bat, no walk steps if you're trotting and no walk or trot steps if you're cantering) will help. Make him step his little hiney up and under him, and as someone posted before you can do this by "lifting" him with your legs and making him rock back.
And yes, this will build his topline.
