Knee Problems When Riding English
I really love english riding, but whenever I ride English, my knees hurt for days afterward when I walk uphill, walk up stairs, or just basically move around. I am only 18 years old! This problem started when I was about 12 and so I had to make a switch to western riding (no posting!) which helped a lot.
Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it? I had special inserts made for my shoes that are supposed to correct my knee alignment, but they don't seem to help much when I'm riding. Also, I've been to a physical therapist who said that I needed to strengthen the muscles around my knee. It is so frustrating! I would really like to resume english riding.
