Okay, I can look into that. Im so sorry about that happening to you :( I joke around I got a 6 pack under the fat :P But really I got strong abs and people told me but I suppose its good I do. I've always had a good core.

Having a good core is very good when riding..Not completely necessary but very beneficial..

I was upset over the seizures and stuff at first but now I just accept it and try to make the most of it..I don't know of anyone else in my shoes that still does what I do with everything stacked against me..Not just the seizures..but that's a whole different story...Just continue to work on yourself and it'll get better. Don't let yourself stop doing something you love just because someone tells you you can't do it or when you think you can't do it anymore.. You can, you just have to believe it then do it.

I agree, work on your core muscles. It's good for everything from sports to everyday posture and balance and feeling good about yourself.

Just don't go all macho and strain your muscles without warming up and starting out slow.

Go to physiotherepy! They can find out exacty what is wrong and how to fix it.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I have the same exact problem! I couple years ago I got bucked off my horse and yet the back off the saddle and flew in the air hit the ground so hard.. now I can barely lift up one of my horses hooves without having any pain.. I thought it was just me.. just sitting here in my bed right now I have some pain in my lower back.. or if I go to sit ddown to fast.. or stand up.. yeah it sucks.. and more recently I've figured out that riding bareback.. I feel like I've been shot in the back.. but I just try to dull the pain out.. I've been around horses my whole life and its not going to stop because my back hurts... and it sucks only being 15 and having so much pain..

Ouch that's not good! I've lived a entire year with the worst bloody pain I've ever had experienced and it was my knee... you can imagine how that goes and yeah I finally went to the doc about it. I tried riding once with it and yeah didnt go well. Riding just made things just as painful and I can't block it out well, I can just live with it. But yeah I kinda fixed it now, but yeah the back thing ill see how it goes but yeah some stuff I can't block out.

Yeah I don't know how I block it out but I have a high tolerance for pain.. sometimes.. sometimes I can't block the pain out but I guess im just so used to it because I've had it for so long that its just not there anymore if you know what im saying. . Well I hope everything gets better for you!:)
