Barnmum, I would suggest you start your own thread rather than hijack this one :)
RedTree and Pinto I totally sympathise with you!! We tend to get your weather 2-3 days after you. It rained the whole weekend and then on Tuesday and Wednesday as well. Luckily today was dry for my lesson but VERY VERY cold, I think it was only about 3 degrees!
Anyway to build muscle, or atleast try to keep it, from the ground I would try things like side passing, backing up, turns on the forehand, turns on the haunches, trotting over poles and cavaletti, lunging, free jumping or lunging over jumps, it will never be as good as a good long ride up a hill but it will help a little.
Diligent, loyal, strong
