Walking a 10-foot circle as you longe your horse will not only burn calories for you, but your horse In the January 2007 issue of Horse & Rider, we offer some tips for getting fit--and slim while you spend time at the barn and with your horse. To help you out, we've put together this chart of calorie-burning values for common horse-related activities.

Keep in mind--the more vigorously you perform these exercises, the more you'll maximize the calorie burning benefits. We'll give you the number of calories burned per exercise for a person who is 5'8" and weights 150 lbs. If you have a smaller frame and weight, you'll burn slightly fewer calories; you'll burn slightly more if you have a larger frame and weigh more.
