Hahaha that is awesome, I remember I did that when I was about 9 and had a saddle but no pony to put it on, so I would put it on the footboard of my bed and pretend I was riding.
-I have this stuff called Anti-flamme, its great for sore muscles and it smells like peppermint candy canes!
If you know of any good muscle creams/antiflammes, put some on before you ride, in the places you know you'll be sore, say the night before and morning of your ride, then put it on again afterwards aswell.
-I find that helps for me in any sport I play, and even helps for the strain of the stupidly heavy school bags.
