So, I took a nasty fall off my horse about a year and a half ago, and tore my hip flexor . Me, being a silly teenage girl, decided that nothing was hurt bad enough to go to the hospital, so I let it go and kept riding regularily. When my hip flexor healed, it healed very tightly causing me regular pain.
Then, I fell off about 4 months ago, and landed on that same him. It hurt BAD so I went and got xrays. Turns out because of how tight my hip flexor had healed it was pulling my pelvis and hip together, causing the cartlidge to be worn away. When I fell, I retore my hip flexor and dislocated my hip.
I've spent the last 4 months going to physiotherapy 3 days a week and doing various exercises every night. I've finally been given the "OK" to ride again. My physiotherapist wants me to start off riding western instead of english though, simply because the english position will be hard on my hip at this point.
I have ridden wester in the past, but I've always been english focused.
So, heres the question. What should I expect in switching from Western to English? And, What should I expect when getting back into riding after an injury?
