|That's very limited. I don't really believe people with semi-serious or serious back problems should ride. As far as joints, only specific joints can truly benefit, others are used while riding racking or non-racking horses. I have a joint problem, by the way, a racking horses would cause no benefit. And I meant riding in general. But these are just my opinions.|
I just said that about the Racking Horses because my best friend rides our Racker and she has back and knee problems, and it doesn't cause her near as much pain as riding my Walker or the Arabian. She says that Butter's gaits and way of walking are just easier on her back and knees. I have knee and back problems as well, and it is true in my case too, but I prefer to ride the Arabian or my Walker because me and Butter...well, we have a history of not getting along.
Hope that clears up why exactly I said that.
