agreed. Also streaching on a horse. I always do it as soon as I get on and I do it untill my legs feel nice and lose. Also do it when your done riding. Trust me it will keep them from being tight and sore the next morning. It also helps with your ballance. Some I do are... when you get on the horse let your legs dangle. And rotate your ankles both ways. Then bring your knee up (like toward your chest) then lower it down where it hangs naturaly then take your whole leg and swing it back like you would do then an instructer walks up to tighten your girth. This stretches your thigh muscle.do that on both sides. Sorry if you have no idea what im talking about ): it hard to explain. Walking up and down stairs will help.
