So, I had been riding for 6 and a half years, but stopped two years ago due to life getting busy. I just started up again and after my first ride back I’m having a bad pain where my inner thigh meets my groin area, as well as the tendon that stretches out when you separate your legs. It’s also bruised and swollen. It didn’t hurt at first, but now it hurts if I walk for too long, sit, separate my legs, or squat. Even when I’m laying in bed it just throbs. I didn’t fall off or anything, I only trotted with posting, did sitting trot, and cantered for a bit. I didn’t feel the pain until I got off the horse. I’m thinking maybe it was just too much on my muscles after not doing any exercise for two years, but it hurts so much. I’m thinking I may have pulled something when I lost a stirrup while cantering when the horse stopped the canter and went into a fast trot without permission. I also experienced rawness, bleeding, and swelling on my groin (female) after the ride, but this never happened in the past. Any idea what the pain might be, how to help heal it, how to help relieve soreness in the future, and prevent rawness in my groin?
