Danville has had his latest treatment from Lisa Neat and he’s fab again! He was very tight after box rest, unwilling to trot/medium trot (easier to canter!). Lisa identified the problem and after working on the areas he’s soft and flexible again - get booked in! 🐴❤️🐴xx thank you

🐴Topline Tips 🐴

1- Ask why
Horses are genetically made to build muscle on the topline, each horse has to have the ability to move from a grazing position to an alert stance and hold it without an issue.
Except in malnourished cases, the main reason horses lack topline is a history of poor posture, and we have to find out why our horses lost their top line in the first place. Is it because the horse was started too young and couldn’t hold the weight of the rider? Did the “braking saddle” fit correctly? Did the horse have a tumble in the field and it never really healed? Lameness also leads to a loss of top line, especially if the horse has been on box rest as the muscles just waste away because of a lack of us.

2- Fix underlying issues
Resolving the primary issue behind topline loss allows the horse’s brain to “reset.” Topline muscles don’t strengthen from sweaty workouts but through ­building core muscles, posture training essentially. For that to happen, We need to train the horse’s mind to know what to do with those muscles, as well as the opposing ones along the abdomen. It’s a big brain workout with huge muscular benefits, remember to take things easy and build over time.
If pain is to blame, topline-building exercises will only make it worse and can trigger a pain response that’ll cause defensive behaviors. If the primary problem is limited movement, get the horse moving, let him live outside as much as possible. And when in doubt always remember to ask your vet for advice and a visit.

3- Evaluate tack
A saddle can destroy a topline. As long as your saddle is ill-fitting, your horse will adjust and continually readjust his posture in ways to relieve the pain. Over time he’ll develop chronic pain and muscle wasting along the topline. Your saddle should be checked every 6 months, and more often if your horse is growing or in intense training.
Young horses can quickly learn bad posture habits if started under an ill-fitting saddle, the habit of starting a horse under “the broken old saddle in case he rolls on it” really has to change (one of my pet hates)
Bridle fit has a huge effect on horse biomechanics and range of movement (detailed in previous posts) and an uncomfortable bridle, makes the horse uneven and less lightly to relax, making it harder to build a topline.

4- Work on ground exercices
Building the back means building the horse’s core,and there’s really no shortcut. you can do core training in only 5 minutes a day on the ground.
The first thing you have to do is build that brain-body connection. The muscle control in the brain has to be wired in such a way that the supporting, stabilizing, core musculature fires first, not second.
There’s loads of amazing polework groups on facebook too, make the most of them if you're lacking imagination, long reining and walks in nature with irregular footing making the horse “look where he is going” and can really engage the core.

5- Get the whole team involved
If you’re already doing everything listed above, get the whole team involved. We have mentioned the saddler and vet but include people with a different point of view. . Send a message to your nutritionist, make sure your horse has all the minerals and proteins he needs to build muscle. The farrier to make sure the legs are balanced and have correct weight distribution. Your training should be able to do some non-ridden lessons to improve the horse's balance and stretch. Your massage therapist, to help with circulation, muscle atrophy, loosening of tension and making the most of his natural range of movement. We all want the absolute best for your four legged friend and can show little tricks of the trade and a different perspective
