Well, there went that career idea.
Well, darn! If I had ever thought about a future in riding English or jumping, that just went out the window! I decided to jump one of my horses 2 1/2 feet yesterday and he KILLED it! He loves to jump and was as happy as a lark the whole time!! I was ecstatic until I got home and it felt like my knee was being stabbed every time I bent it. Apparently I pulled my MCL when I was jumping Rebel, and whenever I bent it that make it all the worse. This isn't the first time I've strained it but I wasn't smart enough to recognize is before. So unless, I want to have surgery and go through all that, that career is gone because my MCL is too weak to deal with the strain. Good thing I wasn't planning on a future in English, anyway! :-P
Bummer! Hope it gets to feeling better soon!!
I'm sorry :(
I don't know what it is but whenever I used to jump or ride in two point my knee would completely go. I couldn't even really walk after riding. And showjumping was my thing so every other day I would be hobbling around. I got these bendy stirrups and they helped a lot. I don't do short stirrup/jump work now though and its not really a problem. You could do dressage.
It's back to normal now, but thanks guys!! I found out it was my 'superficial MCL' that I pulled because apparently it's one of 3 major tendons in your knee. And Saskia, I was kidding. There's absolutely no future in English for me, it just doesn't click with me!! Haha!!
I was actually in a western saddle so that could have been it, too.
