Should I be working out 🏋 outside of riding ?

Should I be working out 🏋 outside of riding ?
Absolutely! Is it really fair to our horses that we ask them to have a certain fitness level that we don't have ourselves? Your balance, carriage of your own body, and cardio will be better while riding. Again, is it really fair to our horses if we aren't in shape?
yess! Since i started working out, riding has physically been a better experience
For sure! It will only make you a better and stronger rider!
It always helps your fitness and gets you stronger but unless your riding youngsters or difficult horses there's not a massive need to every day x
