    Default Off horse exercises

    I am a full time college student and dont have nearly as much time to ride as i used to! I get out to the barn 2-3 times a week but ive noticed my eq has really started to fall apart since im not as strong. Any one know of some good exercises to do to help my riding muscles stay strong?

    Yoga! You can download some videos through bittorrent. If you have the motivation (I currently don't), it's great for building strength in your legs and 'core' and for stretching out your tendons.

    when I cant ride, I walk/run stairs.

    Pilates. I notice when my core gets weak, the rest of it falls apart. OTOH, I can get away with weeks of not practicing on horseback as long as I keep my core strong.
