    Woah, kinda... forgot about this thread, oops. SORRY!

    I have a 'strong' seat/position, if I concentrate on it- but I do have the hip problem that is just barely noticable, and most of the falls I've taken I've landed flat on my back, I've probably messed something up.

    Just now I was leaning forward on the computer desk to read through all these posts, and after a few minutes of that my back/shoulders area is killing me.
    I was actually considering a yoga-like class anyway, so now I'm going to look into it seriously, and attempt to get checked out- my parents don't see a problem though, they're very against going to the doctor for 'silly little things', but I'll see what I can do and find some classes!

    Tell your parents very politely that there is nothing "little" about back ache - especially if you are young.

    Go and see that physio, make sure they lay you on a table and feel your back
    Make you walk up and down.

    Then ask as many questions as you can think of.

    Then do as he/she tells you.

    For riding see if you can find an elasticated back support which can fit round your waist just above the hips. Ideally you need the muscles but at the beginning this
    Device will help hold your back in the correct position. It will also give a slight amount of protection should you fall - but a body protector would be better.

    Look out for a proper office chair which gives support to your lower back

    Your back is important Alexis - don't neglect it.

    Thanks for the suggestions Barry, I'll definitely look into it and talk to my parents.
