Benefits of this Workout
A quote taken from: Linda Leistman, President of North American Horsemen's Association
Equestrian Weight Lifting and Strength Training
Muscular strength assists horseback riders in better controlling a horse, both from the ground and in the saddle, letting the horse know who is boss and in riding more safely. A horse can easily decipher if a rider is weak and ineffective. Not only will a horse sometimes simply not respond to a weak rider, but he also can react badly because the weak and ineffective rider is not capable of giving the horse the confidence for which he looks to the rider to provide at uncertain moments.
Some other benefits of strength and balance training include.
1. Decreasing the chances of serious injury.
2. Helping injuries heal quicker
3. Looking better and more elegant in the saddle.

4. Making riding more enjoyable

5. Increasing metabolism by increasing muscle mass (which usually decreases every year after the age of 25).
