Oh and I forgot something really important. If your horse will let you do it, lean your back against his body when you're hurting, the heat is great.

I'm no expert, but I keep reading articles that exercise helps!

Try to keep moving.....Oh, by the way....your horse want's your attention!

Hero, there will be times you will want to scream.
There will be times you will want to cry. It will be ok to do both.
There will be times you will be angry. its normal.
It is however never ok to be angry with yourself.
You are not the problem your disease is.
Find a reason to smile and laugh everyday. It makes life bearable..

You guys are awesome with all the advice! I'm really going to take "I could either lie there and whine until I rotted or live life like it didn't know what hit it." to heart.

I will try to laugh or smile everyday no matter how bad the pain is. No reason to let this problem interfer with my dreams for the future. I started to ride my thoroughbred again, when I got on him I realized how much I missed riding him even if he isn't the best trained horse out there. LOL. I felt like heaven on him.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling so well- I've had arthritis in my back since I was 15, and damage from torn back muscles over the past few years (I try to be a he-man at work and lift more than I should ;) ) . I definitely know what you're going through. The best thing you can do for yourself is to stay active; swimming in particular helps tremendously, not to mention being great in this heat! Thinking positive makes a world of difference too- there are new medical developments happening all the time for pain management and treatments, just a matter of time before they find cures! Take care and keep riding- things will get better soon ;)

hiya my girl frend nancy has the same problems her spine was fused and has 2 titanium rods bolted in her back there is a condition and i cant spell as its a long word.
it is degenarative and she is wheel chair bound i think life has given her a rough deal but i make sure she is all right.
i brought her a cart so her wheel chair goes in the back folds down like a ramp you remove a seat and the wheel chair clamps in.
and had reins made with loops so she can drive.
she came down to were i was on holiday a frend brought her down and she had a ride in the newforest she rode for half a mile i was beside her suporting her and she was in so much pain.
my frend how about driveing it might be a better option i can see your frustration at your body changes as i see it in nancys.
my frend you take care ok.

I know how you feel, my spine is twisted, and I go every day with pain some where. Last night I was walking through the house, and some thing pinched somewhere, and pain shot through my while body.

I've had this since I was 14, and I'm now 19. I know it's hard now, but you can make it through. Ice packs help, or a warm bath before bed. Same days will be bad, some days will be ok, but don't let your pain stop you. Be who you want to be, and do things when you want to do it. I gave up riding for a while, because I was afraid of the pain, till one day I realized that no matter what I do, I'm going to be in pain. Might as well have fun while you hurt right?

Thanks everyone for your replies! I have started a physical therapy routine and this one has seem to work well. I go 3 times a week which can be a bit of hassel but atleast its making my back feel better! I still have my constant pain but it has gone from feeling like needles that were jabbing in my back to more a aching, stiff pain. Which I dont mind that at all! I do still have flare ups which are obvisously more painful but I just try to ignore or whip out some physical therapy excercises. and a heating pad.

Its just more of a lifestyle change for me. Instead of not really caring about my body and pushing it to its limits, I now have to care about it and do different excercises, and work time in to go to physical therapy and use the different machines.
