Hello! I am brand new here & hope that maybe someone on here will be able to give me some advice. I am a barrel racer(when my body allows me to anyway). When I get on my horse I have a heck of a time swinging my right leg over to get on the horse & once I am there it really hurts. I always stretch & walk quite a bit before I get on to try to alleviate the pain but this does not work very well at all. Some days are better than others but I never have a pain free day of riding & it does not seem to matter if I ride every day or take alot of time off between rides. Yes, I have been to numerous doctors & have tried just about everything under the sun for my pain. The pain is mostly in my thighs, buttocks and has just started on the outside of my knees too. Both sides of my body hurt the same.
I sure hope that no one else out there has my pain but if you do, what have you been able to do for it? Thanks so much & I look forward to being on here with all of you other horse lovers.
