Just was wondering if anyone has ever got a hernia through riding. I was out on a ride at christmas and during a canter I got a real pain in my groin and had problems ever since. My doc is sending me for a scan as she thinks I may have a hernia. Anyone else developed problems riding??

a hernia wouldnt be created from riding, it would have been an issue AGGRAVATED by riding. Watch the foods you eat and the lifting you do.

Are you female? Women do get hernias, but the type of hernia women get is usually not diagnosed easily with a scan.

Just thought I would put an update to this thread I started, turned out not to be a hernia but I have actually broken my pelvis in 2 places, it happened during cantering on my horse at christmas. As the horse and saddle came up I went down with a thud and broke my pelvis. Boy did it hurt. Thanks for the replies.
