She has, actually. My saddle is actually custom fit just for her, but I never took my leaning into consideration, and it makes alot of sense. When we really started to notice it was when I joined the equestrian team at the university I attended last year, because the pony I was riding would often throw a buck or two, and the instructor said that was probably why. Its just odd that it either happened all of the sudden, or none of my trainers ever noticed it..
And i've always had back problems! I get really stiff if I ride for a certain amount of time, but I always thought that was normal. Especially over fences. But I guess I should go then!
