I suppose you could do something like yoga to work on balance and flexibility in general. And being on a regular exercise program is going to make your body stronger, overall, and more able to hold a balanced position. But again, you kind of need the horse to work specifically on balance while riding.
I agree 100% with you but I am very restricted as far as what exercises I can do because of my back injury I do water aerobics two to three times a week and I walk a mile every other day but that's about it as far as what I can do. I use to love to do kick boxing, regular aerobics, running, hikeing, & kayaking but can't anymore. I have also put on alot of weight since I got hurt even though I watch what I eat I just can't be as active as I use to be.
