Thanks guys, I don't think it's caused by the saddle since I haven't really been having a problem lately, and when I was before it was caused by me tensing up and bracing into my irons. It was also a problem the matter what saddle I used(english or western). There is a chance that I was doing that yesterday since I rode in the neighbors outdoor ring and the last time(which was also the first time) I rode over there I ended up falling off. I'm not normally tense while riding Molly tho so I'm not sure if that was it or not and even when I went and rode in the regular ring my knees were still hurting. I guess that could be from the previous stress on them since I had already been riding an hour when I went back over. I have had knee pain for years, it was at it's worse when I was in my late teens, there were times I could hardly walk it was so bad. I seem to have our grown it for the most part but sometimes I do still have pain when the weather is bad and I'm doing a lot of walking. I wish I could afford those expensive stirrups but at the point I can hardly afford lessons.
