I had weak legs too. What I did was (am doing)
1- I hold my two point while at the walk, trot, and canter. (usually just once around in each direction)
Also, I squeeze as hard as I can with my calves when posting. I notice when my leg moves so I keep squeezing until i'm still.
I'm not really sure this would help your legs, but it helps your core (which helps everything)
When you post, hold up for two then sit, stay up for two, then sit. Eventually move to three up, two down.
It takes a little getting used to, but it REALLY helps you control your body.
Say to yourself "up, up, down. Up, up down" it really helps you get the rhythm!
Also, I ride a narrow horse, and for me to keep my legs still on her is harder than riding a horse with a wider barrel. maybe that's just me.. but yeah.
You could also try just walking around yourself.
When I cool my horse out after working, I dismount and hand walk her. Also, out outdoor arena is down hill, so I hand walk her up and down.
I live to ride and I ride to live
Horses are just angels without wings
