    For me, yes.. if I was to walk any horse for 20 miles, I likely would be crying by the end.. or on the ground walking (hobbling) myself with the horse in tow.

    I have the same kind of spasms if I am on my feet all day at work and not able to move around (doing anesthesia for a 2+ hour surgery has me crippled as well, even if I have a stool to sit on). Movement is my back's friend.

    The smooth motion of a gaited horse is still enough my back counts it as non-movement and gets angry. So I am all about posting!

    Endurance is the most fun you will ever have TOTALLY abusing your body. It is so much fun, but it is also a lot of work. It is a really great chance to bond with your horse and truly become a team. It is amazing how tired you can get trying to "save" your horse from getting too sore.
