Controlling the horse, mucking out stalls, leading, feeding, and overall taking care of a horse is a big job which can keep your heart rate elevated.
In a jump course, you have to stay in two point which is off the horse. This uses your leg muscles over an extended amount of time.
Posting, which is moving yourself up and down on a horse while they are trotting uses your muscles, but not for a very long amount of time.
Equestrians are mostly ectomorph, slightly built, but they do have muscles.
In jumping a course you have to get out of the saddle and lean forward with your head up and forward. This has your whole body work together.
