I have a question that is probably kind of silly but I've been curious about it. You see, the two horses we're buying are still babies and haven't been trained to ride yet so we'll be the one's who start them (probably by a professional trainer) this way they'll be trained the way we want them trained and we'll be the only ones who ride them hopefully for their whole lives.
Anyways, my question stems from a chronic condition my husband has. He's ridden horses before so he's experienced, although it's been at least 15 years since he's been on a horse... but he's got chronic pain on his left leg due to being bitten by a brown recluse spider 12 years ago.. he's now got bad blood clots in that leg and any pressure on the inside of his knee/leg hurts. I don't even know if he'll be able to ride comfortably... but I was wondering if he is slightly or more than slightly unbalanced with his position on the horse do you think it would mess her up at all? It'll be a trial and error thing when he first rides as he doesn't even know if he'll be in any pain since he hasn't ridden since getting the original injury so this might not even be an issue but I don't want to mess up a horse by him always having to sit unbalanced in the saddle.. know what I mean?
Any opinions/experience with this sort of issue would help out so thanks in advance for any replies.
