I jsut had a minor tear in my ACL.My doctor said that english riding could be part of therapy. Not my ONLY therapy though. You will be okay. No stirrups will make you sore for like a week then you will be fine.

I tore the MLC Ligament about 10 years ago. Doc decided surgery wasn't the option and stuck me in physical therapy for 4 months. I still have weakness in my knee. I wear a knee brace when I ride.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

What knee brace do you use? Do you like it?

I've got a few different kinds of them. I just buy them at sports or department stores. The one that gives me the most support without too much decrease in flexibility has the velcro strap above and below the knee cap. I have the plain neoprene ones, and they are more comfortable, but don't help if I'm riding for a long time.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
