I was wondering if there were any exercises for me to do off my horse
(due to a reacent back injurie) , I wanted to work on my thigh, arm ,
leg and stomach muscles.
Can any one help me?

Working out in a pool gives you a semi-weightless environment which is ideal
for rehab.  This is even used for horses in some cases.  Try to get into a
water arobics class, if you can find them. (Like arobics, but in the water
which provides more resistance, hence a better workout in a semi-weightless
environment).  Doing crunches in the water with floats should help build the
abdominal (stomach) muscles.  Consult with a personal trainer at your local
athletic club - preferably one with water arobic training.
