Lower Back Pain In Two-Point!
So I have recently switched trainers - which I am *extremely* happy for!! Old trainer was bipolar ... Anyway ... This new trainer is really great - she's kind, has a great teaching style, and really relates to all of 'her kids.' She also works us very hard in lessons - which I love! The only problem with that is, I have been experiancing bad lower back pain when in 2 point.
I'm fine for the first few minutes of 2 point. But after a little while I notice my back starts hurting really badly. It feels like someone turned my spine into barbed wire. It's not all at once, but it does come pretty quick. Starts with a nag and ends with it being so ouchy I just have to go for the sitting walk for a second, because even posting hurts. I've heard it's a core thing ... but what can I do to fix it?
This doesn't usually happen if we just do 3 point excerises, or even just jumping for a long time. It's the continous 2 point, with the bobbing of the trot that hurts so badly.
Thanks in advance :)
