Any Change?
Do you think there is any change in Lucky's muscling since before I got him, and after I've had him for a few months? I think he's rump is more filled out and he got bigger, stronger gaskins, but I could be wrong. Also, what can I try to improve on, or build more? HOW can i build it if it needs to be worked on.

He looks amazing. His topline is MUCH better. He is more even;ly muscled, and not only does he look healthier, but he looks ALOT younger. Good work!

Oh wow, thank you. I have been working on keeping him collected and rounding while cantering, since he looses it there. I tend to have a hard time knowing if he's rounding or using his hind end so I could really only work on when my trainer/barn manager was there.

I agree, he looks A LOT better. The sway-back from the first picture definitely improved. Good work!

Hard to say. Can't say much when in the second photo the horse is eating with its head down. The coat looks better, maybe a bit more filled in and less overweight...

I was afraid the head position would interfere with it. I will try and get one of standing regular. That is the most UTD one I have of him, that is critique-able in comparision. His back muscles are weak, and it is frustrating but I've been trying to work on it, lots of hill work to work get him to engage his hindquarters more since he used to just drag them around behind him and plow along on the forehand. I need to get an educated set of eyes watching us ride before I can really improve anymore than I have.
