I'm 28. I went to the ortho dr and he said that i needed a slimmer horse, he seemed to think he was very funny when he said this. Then he gave me a few stretches to do and sent me away. It's been almost 3 weeks of me doing stretches and it's not getting better. I haven't ridden my horse in about a month (which is just killing me and is also not the best for the horses training) and nothing has changed.
I'm looking into getting a second opinion and not mentioning i have a horse, or at least not saying i ride a wide horse.
