Last year I had a serious horse accident that resulted with a broken back.
Miracles happened, and I have healed up nicely and have been cleared to ride again!! I only trail ride on gaited horses, but often, if the gaited isn't close to perfect, or my posture is not correct, I get that 'pounding' (my body coming down, as the horse is coming up) that is hard on me.
I've researched dozens of ortho/therapy type pads from all tack vendors, (and trust me, there are a lot of them), they cost anywhere from 100-300 apiece, meaning, you can't just try 'em out at this price.
My question.......does anyone have a back issue that requires a special pad that they could unquestionably recommend, and if so, what brand / kind is it, and where could I get it from?
I would greatly appreciate any help along this line.
I can happen the slow walk, but when the horse speeds up to gait, it can be painful.
