That's great that you're back in the saddle! Maybe try stretching those leg muscles before your lesson to loosen 'em up for riding. I don't think there's really a butt muscle stretch........... or, I'd hate to see what it would look like at least haha. But no matter how it sounds, it's good you're in pain, it means you were working!

how nice that you are back into riding again. It really is a lot of fun, isn't it? As for the school horse being lazy, well, they often are. Might be good to carry a crop.
