    I would at least get a back support to wear while riding if I were you. Sometimes it helps to stick an ice pack underneath.

    When I ride horses that are uncomfortable I tend to ride in my two point position most of the time. It seems to hurt much less that way. Luckily back when I showed it was jumpers so that was acceptable. If I did need to trot I posted as much as possible but never went down as far as was typical when posting, sitting a trot was just asking for trouble.

    Stretching before and after riding also helped a bit. Many of the yoga positions are ones that my physical therapist prescribed for me and they are easy to look up online of follow out of a book.

    I have a severe case of scoliosis on my right side and have all the same issues. I have found massage therapy to help more than the chiropractor.. I also have to have a "trained" horse. Horses that need assistance for balance at the canter are hard for me to ride. I just recently purchase a flex tree Toulouse Genesis saddle and my problems have begun again! I am twisting in the saddle and I can not stop bending forward! Ugh! Its terrible! I want my regular tree saddle back! I ride without stirrups a whole lot to gain strength and stability.
