I think that would depend greatly on your overall fitness to begin with. Granted, you will use muscles riding that you might not use otherwise, but you can find exercises, like the pilates, that are geared toward equestrians. But the level of rider fitness also varies depending on what you want to do. I seriosly doubt that a barrel racer uses the same muscles/intensity as a dressage ride. I would consider what type of riding that I wanted to do, then decide what type of exercises would be the most adventageous.
