do cavaletti work to work on raising the back. Also a book that I have found to be one of my favorite resources is a book by Jec Aristotle Ballou on horse exercises. I use it ALL the time. Remember not to overwork it though; some of these exercises might not seem like they are hard for the horse but they may be more difficult than we as humans can really perceive.
Here is a link to the book: http://www.amazon.com/Equine-Fitness-Program-Exercises-Routines/dp/B00AKR4QVW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362586611&sr=8-1&keywords=jec+aristotle+ballou
You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~
