Filling pocket behind shoulder
My QH has a pocket behind each shoulder blade and I would like to have it fill in somehow. Any suggestions?
A pocket? I am confused? You mean an indentation? How are you supposed to fill that in? With collegan implants?
It sounds like it could be the muscling wasting away from a too narrow saddle.

I think the OP has a genuine question and I would hardly consider that a genuine answer, especially from a real horse person who knows a lot about riding and muscling a horse. Wanna give it another go for real this time?
Ok I will try again, I am confused though? What pockets are you referring to? Can you please post a picture? I know you cannot spot induce muscle on places that are indented if they are indented to begin with.
It sounds like there is muscle wasting or lack of muscling behind the shoulder blade Do you want thing you can do to build up the shoulders? Working in sand, stepping over things not jumping but walking over and really making the horse lift their legs, and ground driving or pulling things will help build up the shoulders.
Yes I think the OP is talking about indentations (or lack of muscling) behind the shoulder just below the wither - would probably make the horse look very narrow-withered....
it could be a lack of calories, yes - muscle atrophy (hopefully not b/c you can't correct that) or just lack of working the right muscles - I've seen this on horses that are ridden upside down ...
Couldn't help it...LOL YOU know what I mean...:lol::lol::lol:
yes, we need some pics!
I have to say that MOST of the time this is due to poor saddle fit. If the horse is not being ridden, then it may be from lack of exercise or poor condition/low body weight.
Here are some pics. His prev owner said he has always been thin on top but I don't think he is normal
