Bumping this back up! Feel free to contribute some more exercises both on and off your horse to help them stretch out and build muscle!

She also has her website where she offers in depth DVDs, free yoga youtube vid, and you can request a distance-read on your horse where she'll tell you what's off and then tell you how to go about handling it (or call her, either way)
