So I've recently started riding with a new trainer and she changed my position. Nothing extremely dramatic but enough to where is feels really different even though it's not that different. But my back is so sore from it. Is this normal? I use to have a "chair seat" as my trainer puts it so she is having me correct that by riding on my pelvis more instead of sitting straight up like I'm in a chair. I'm not sure if I'm explaining that well...sorry...

Yes, it is normal to feel back pain. I did when my instructor fixed the slight chair seat I get.

Thanks :) I just wanted to make sure cause both my parents have back issues so it's likely I'll have back issues and just want to be careful about that stuff.

Are you arching your back? De Kunnfy taught us to "lumbar tuck", while raising and opening your chest, and lowering your upper leg and thigh. I thought it was pretty awkward at first, but after a month of practicing it, no more back pain. (Now, though, with a different horse that needs more "riding" on my part, and due to age I guess, I do have back pains again. *sigh*)

Any time you change the position that you ride in, you will be engaging different muscles or engaging the same muscles differently and will result in soreness for a while.

I used to work for a chiropractor depending on what kind of back issues your parents have, you need to be careful.
You need to stretch before and after your horse lesson, AND if you do have pain and it continues go and see a chiropractor ASAP.
