Well, WS, I also seem to have chronic back pain :P so I'm always sore there, and we're doing alot of tweaking to my "basics" position to get it EQ pretty and perfect. Like the way my conformation is, my toe will stick out to the side, but that isn't pretty and isn't functional in dressage, so I'm breaking my ankles getting them to point forwards :P
And bigger movements require more muscle, which can lead to some soreness. Like moving up to jumping bigger fences or riding in more half seat, there's always going to be more muscle to build
