Muscle Building Help- XC Courses.
So, I am currently competing Training, and do not have my own horse. I have realized that during my cross country courses at events, my legs get incredibly tired, and I have realized its from staying up in a halfseat/2point between fences and gallop stretches.
I'm not entirely used to that. During jump lessons, I usually keep a pretty solid, or veryy slight half seat, and even then, I just go, domy course, and stop and wait for the other riders to go, so I don't have much practice keeping half seat for long periods of time.
I included that fact that I do not ride my own horse, because that means I only ride up to 3 times a week, which makes it harder to practice. I'm going to assume that the biggets way to strengthen my muscles is just to ride around in two-point for long periods of time. I was wondering if there was anything else I can do, specifically at home, but also on horseback to increase my muscle strength, in whatever muscles I need to keep two point?
Oh, and one minor detail- my next event is in exactly a week, so I reallyyy need help.
Thanks in advance!
