Would like a little bit of help before tommoz PLEASE!

HELLO THERE HORSE LUVERS lol XD. Sorry i just have to say i had an AWSOME!!!!!!!! ride last night on my boss's horse. the horse babysat me lol my boss had warned me that the horse was a babysitter and my gosh was she ever!! anyway i finally was trotting by myself not really scared or nervous wich was a first for me by the middle and end of my ride which was probably an hour nd a half maybe lol i wasnt keeping track because i was feeling so good (very rare for me not to be afraid i was rideing alone). Anyhoot i had a great ride and boosted my self esteem a few more notches on a scale of 1-10 i felt a ten last night and my confidence to ride on my own and trot from 1-10 was a high six. But i woke up this morning to like extreme pain in my legs and butt LOL sounds reeeaaaally stupid im sure i sound dumb but ive never been this sore ever! after riding.... any heeellpp pleease LOL im supposed to ride a diffrent horse tommoz but i realy dont want to hurt as bad as i do today XD...... (could i be hurting because i was sitting the trot in a all leather western saddle? usually the saddles i ride in have a bit more padding).......... hope this is in the right place

If you aren't used to riding, then riding for an extended period of time will make you sore. Heck, when I was living in the city and only riding once every couple of months, I would wake up the next morning so sore that I could barely walk.

The very best thing you can do about the soreness is to take a hot bath and soak for a while, take some ibuprofen, and ride again the next day. Riding more takes the soreness away faster than anything.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
