    Horseback Riding and Ulcerative Colitis

    This Thanksgiving I was diagnosed with pancolitis. I regularly ride horses, and I was wondering if it will affect my condition or make it worse. I really don't want to quit riding, but I also don't want the colitis to get worse.

    Re: Horseback Riding and Ulcerative Colitis

    It won't make your UC worse, but riding will probably affect you if you have urgency or if you have the urge to go while riding. I take it you're experienced, so you will have a proper seat with less stress on your abdomen/bottom.

    What meds have you been put on?

    What are your symptoms at this point?

    Have you been improving?

    I know of many who enjoy riding, but will admit that while flaring it's not so great considering legs are spread while doing so and urgency is an issue.

    I do hope you're using rectal meds...that will help with the urgency.

    One thing that might be OK, but not in abundance....imodium, low dosage and not daily. Maybe save it for times you need to ride longer.
