So I just wanted to see others opinions on how important it is for the rider not just the horse to keep fit. I think its important to keep fit outside of riding to strengthen my riding, so I do yoga and pilates. However my sister who rode also up until recently said that it wasn't important and only riding could make you a better rider, she said I was the only person in the world who thought exercise was important.
So, I think keeping fit is helpful when you ride and can make you a better rider, but what do you think? Do you think keeping fit is important? And can it make you a better rider?
