Keeping in shape

What do you do to keep in shape for riding? Specifically hunter/jumper? Are there any specific exercises?

I ride my horse :)
Seriously, he knows how to keep me in shape by throwing spontaneous spooks and spazzes the second I think he's focused on me. Ahh, silly boy. He really is great though.

Occassionally I'll do wall sits, or toe lifts (idk what they are called! When you stand on your toes, slowly go down and repeat) to keep my legs stronger when I can't ride.

I ride 2-3 horses a day and do barn work from 7am to about 5-6 pm.
