Hello! A few months ago I was galloping my horse through a pasture when he spooked at something, I think it was a leaf. Anyway we slowed down at it a little so I started to sit down when bam, he rears up spins around and I slam back down in my saddle I got him under control went for a calm walk, all was good. Then when I got off him I had this sharp pain under my right shoulder blade and the base of my back. I took of my saddle and the pain got worse. Then when I woke up in the morning and for 3 weeks after it hurt to breath a little and sneezing brought me to my knees. My parents knew about it and they just thought I pulled a mussel. The weeks went by and it got better but has hit like a wall where for the past 2 months it is the same pain everyday. I gave up jumping first, then dressage and went back to my western saddle recently because my jumping saddle killed my back, and so did my dressage saddle. Then moving back to western it hurts a bit less to ride, but I have to post during extended trot part of my warm-ups. I hate it! Also when I am just walking around it hurts sometimes, I can't bend down and pick something up with it hurting really bad. Picking up my 40 pound dog is torture, and typically I can't do it. I really hate doctors, I really hate that they may say well we can give you a shot to mask the pain. NO I hate doctors and shots more than anything. I want a treeless saddle anyway, would it help with my back? I noticed when I used my Thinline with my dressage saddle it helped a bit. But I was wondering if a treeles would. What do you think? Sorry its so long!
