Topline

What are some things I can do to help build up my mares top line. She has a tiny neck and can be quite cold backed at times. Exercise ideas?

Obviously conformation plays a large part - some horses are never ment to have massive top lines.

Nutrition, then correct work.

Top line will come with correct work, correcrt work up hills accelerates the process but hill work alone will not.

The fact that you state she is 'cold backed' tells me that she has a misalignment and needs chiropractic work.
This is why she is poor in her top line because she cannot use herself correctly.

True, but maybe it's best to have an assessment done to see?

Absolutely, it's always good to have them checked over. But just bare in mind that not EVERY behavioural issue is caused by pain ;)
