| | Horseback Riding
I know riding isn't good but I was wondering if light riding was OK. For example, I won't lope(canter) or trot alot with the horses, I need to turnback. In order to do this I have to make alot of jerking motions and hard stops (but theres also alot of sitting and waiting involved). We use cattle so you've got to be fast! I'm asking someone else to do the saddles and heavy lifting. I've been there the longest and have the most experience so no ones else is really able to do it. I'm only 6 weeks so does it even matter if I ride my horse normally? I was just wondering because I clean/feed the horses on Saturdays and this past weekend I had alot of trouble finishing everything without getting tired or crampy. Any info would help. Thanks alot!
ps. I haven't been riding alot because of the weather so i'm not really conditioned for it at this point - will this make a difference?
