I like to hit the gym for some circuit training and ab work for strengthing and toning muscles. A great video series to try that is short, easy to follow, yet sacrificing no intensity and that always delivers fast results is p90x. Personally I have had great success in using these videos and I find them very useful for days when I can't seem to drag myself to the gym.
Just like trail riding can give you a refreshing change of scenery, I find going on bike trails on the weekends to be both a great workout and a lot of fun! Just grab a bike, some friends or family and you can even pack some healthy snacks or a picnic lunch! It's a great way to spend your days off...when you're not busy at the barn, that is.
Boy, a lot of people here doing pilates. I must try it!
I discovered pole fitness as a great cross training activity - and it is super fun too!  It works every muscle of my body! 
I also compete in full contact jousting.  whenever I can't train/ride, I pull out the equipment and practice in the backyward.  Just trying to lift the lance can be tricky! Haha.
Oh and of course, swimming!  The best cardio out there.
That's interesting, Jaclyn! Do you belong to a jousting club? I didn't know people did that any more!
Yoga! I can't seem to go a few days without it before I get a sore back, tight hips and hamstrings, and a frazzled mind. It helps me be aware of my body so I can use my aids independently, and makes me feel strong and flexible.

I also cycle and do free weights (less often than I should!) to keep my endurance and strength up. It sure helps when riding the volatile ones!

kyokushin karate helps me with  balance and keeps me in shape as well as eating healthy. grooming my horses and working in my garden . i also enjoy fresh fruit smoothies at home. :)


I finally found the barn chore calorie counter! I have attackhed it! Now everyone can see how many calories they burn doing basic barn chores! Enjoy!
Just sitting on a exercise ball instead of a normal chair helps strengthen the core muscles and helps improve balance for riding.  This is good if you are working at a desk all day.
