What are good workouts for riders?

What are good workouts for riders?
Rising trot but don't let your bum touch the saddle
these help really well if you work out in a gym
Any ab workout! Running to help stamina, calf & leg strengthening exercises like stairs. Etc! :)
Plank is really helpful for your core and squats can help with leg strength. You can also do yoga type stuff to help with balance. Swimming also builds a lot of the same muscles because unlike running it builds long muscle which is what is used for riding.
Running, boxing, rope skipping and functional training
