Help Strengthening Left Leg for More Effective Leg Aides

As with most people, I am horribly one-sided. I have difficulty in giving efffective leg aides with my left leg as it is so much weaker than my right. So aside from routine riding, I was curious if anyone knew of some excercises for strengthening the main muscles you use to give leg cues. The muscle I am refering to in particular is the "squeezing muscle" on the inside of the leg. Hopefully that makes sense; thank you all in advance for your help

Yeah, my left leg might as well not be there. It's like riding with a dead fish hanging off my hip. I try to strengthen it by riding posting trot with just that leg out of the stirrup. That way it's either use it or fall off. Hopefully others will have good suggestions.

Haha I'll have to try that... I'll try not to hit the sand. I thought about finding one of those Thighmasters or whatever they were called. My mom had one when we were little they look like the metal part of a wooden laundry pin. I'll have to hit up some second hand stores :)

I still have my Thighmaster!! It's way in the back of my closet. I forgot all about that thing. Maybe I'll have to dust it off and put it to work.
