Longer in the back

Whilst asking for critique on Bailadito and seeing if there was anything majorly off, it was noted that he is too short in the back. Basic measurements for horses are such that the neck should be the same length as the head, and the overall body is approximately three horse head lengths. Basing loosely on this idea, I remeasured and yes, his body is only 2.5 horse heads long! So I played around on my editing program on my computer and lengthened his back. So, he went from this...
To this...
Although it felt weird when lengthening it at the time, once I finished on the computer program it looked a lot better to the eye. So... How do I go about doing this in real life on the model itself? Well, I have to wait until I have the waste casting in hand, then I can chop him up...
