I have been riding all my life, so its not like riding is a new activity for my body. Its been 10 yrs so i should be fit enough to ride how i do. I am a dressage rider, and at my level im not doing anything too demanding. Kai ( my horse) is fit, and he doesn't become out of breath, or start huffing and puffing, but i do. I don't think i hold my breath while i ride... does anyone have any breathing technecs that i could try?
