What would be the best exercise for slimming the thighs without gaining muscle?

I have extremely big thighs. I do regular sport a week but I don’t really work out as such. It would be great if anyone could give me some exercise ideas for slimming down the thighs. However, I do not want to gain muscle which would still keep my thighs big.. Thanks!

    Honestly, this was told to me by my personal trainer.

    jogging is an excellent exercise because it let you lose weight
    evenly throughout your whole body. If you want to lose weight in
    specific areas, you should target them with exercises. If they are
    your problem areas, they will be very difficult to tone. You will have
    to work double on them. The best approach is this:
    1. Lower/control your daily calorie intake (control for normal
    weight, lower for overweight).
    2. Run/jog to lower your overall body fat percentage.
    3. Target your problem areas with exercises.
