    When I started dressage lessons about two months ago, the first thing my trainer did was have me stand in my irons and do laps...usually one or two in each direction. His reason for doing this was to get my legs, especially my calves and heels, in the right positions. The first lesson I could barely go three or four steps without sitting down. But as you do it the muscle memory builds and now I can do laps of the dressage ring without ever coming down and it's really built up the strength in my calves and legs, as well as helped my core.
