What are everyone’s favorite exercises to balance and stengthen the rider?

What are everyone’s favorite exercises to balance and stengthen the rider?
No reins. Sometimes riders use their horses mouths for balance without noticing. And also what everyone else is saying 😊😊
No stirrupless riding and sitting trot. Also bareback is good. Also stand up in the saddle (not in 2 point) and hold that for as long as you can. Try that first at a halt then walk, trot and canter
In the gym I think running, planking, ab exercises and butt, thigh and calf exercises. Riding wise I think sitting trot, and stirrupless riding.
full no stirrup ride: work on sitting trot, posting trot, canter. lots of two point can help too!
drop your irons & 2 point like that
Stirrupless rising trot!
