Many people don't believe how much weight you can lose and the muscle you can gain with some serious riding. Catch the horse, un-blanket (I am in Canada), groom, clean feet, tack up (western saddles 35 pounds, English lighter), warm up myself and the horse, horse yoga for both of us, flexing and bending, then a half hour of serious maneuvers and work on balance, suppleness, correctness of movements, position, lengthening, stretching, collection, cool out. Untacking and re-grooming. re-blanketing, turn out. Generally a ride is at least 500 calories, throw some hay, grain and check water, check fences, tack up someone else horse for them (good weight work outs too)
Then we end up on "horse time" and forget to eat ...intermittent fasting and riding an hour a day will get you in shape. Now I just need to go and do it! lol! That is part of my spring challenge work 6 days!

Good luck! I own two horses and miss riding them. This year I plan on getting back into the saddle. I board them right now but yes working out with horses at any aspect will help you with your goals.
