You don't need a gym really with the farm! Picking that poop twice/day all over the place, then dragging it to the pile down the hill, changing water, brushing both horses + riding most probably equal to all kinds of workout in gym.
Also loading/unloading that hay, grain, etc. gives me workout for the whole week.
But seriously I do remember reading at FHOTD blog riding doesn't help you loose much calories. But I'm almost soaking wet every time I'm done with riding. More wet than if I do a fast walk. So I'd think the workout should be pretty good.
