Thumbs up Exercises you can do at home?

Sometimes I'm super busy, or I can't get a ride out, or something along those lines and I'm always wishing I could at least be doing something to improve my riding while at home.

Do you guys know of any at home exercises you can do to improve your riding?

Thanks

Some exercises that you could do are:
1) practise your position on a exercise ball
2) read horse books and horse magazines

There are heaps of things that you could do to help your riding skills :P

Pilates, especially core exercises. They'll give you an awesome seat.

This is what you want. Balance comes from core muscle strength, and when you have good balance when riding, everything else falls into place.

Here is a good heels down exercise.
Stand on the stairs, just the ball of your foot. Use your seat muscles to raise up to level, the slowly back down. It will help to keep your leg muscles softened up and it will help with the leg position.
