Hello, I have a new Canadian podcast http://www.straightfromthehorsesmouthradioshow.com
Straight From the Horse's Mouth Radio Show is an interview podcast that features the most unique and interesting people in the horse world. I talk with artists, authors, inventors, entrepreneurs, therapists, horse communicators, anyone with an innovative and creative approach to horses.
If you, or anyone you know, would be a good fit as a guest on Straight From the Horse’s Mouth Radio Show, please an email to with “Interview” in the subject line - firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
welcome new commers. I will be turning 60 this year and I just sold my draft cross and bought an oldenburg, Wow what a change, I am just getting use to the sitting trot no stirrups. My hat off to those of you that an sit the warmblood trot. I also still jump,
So, I officially joined the 50 crow yesterday on Sunday! And celebrated my first day in the 50's decade with a trail ride on my somewhat steady steed Guinness (I'm on the dark bay). Fabulous time, and I know that the 50's will be my best decade yet! Great to join this group!
Thanks Jackie...I will look into the Back on Track stuff.
I am here in Tuscany and have found a western riding school a few miles outside of Lucca. Seems they have a very good reputation, and all their horses are Mustangs! Wouldn't that be a treat! They offer 1,2, and 3 hour trail rides thru the countryside of Tuscany, vineyards,...anyone out there ever been riding in Tuscany?
Hi Gayle, welcome back!
I do not have your diagnosis. However I've had decades of sporadically suffering lower back pain (resulting from a car wreck 30 years ago).
Yes, for the first three years riding made it worse, a lot worse.
What I have found has worked the best for pain and mobility is the Back on Track stuff. When riding (either on a horse or in a car) triggers my back I get whatever Back on Track product I have in reach and try to keep it on the painful place for at least a few hours. Usually the pain and debilitating stiffness GOES AWAY until the next time I trigger it.
Good luck in finding a solution that works for you!
HI Horse lovers! Been while since I have visited here.....I was wondering if anyone has experienced a condition called sacroilitis....inflammation of the sacroiliac joint in other words. I do not know if horse back riding has contributed to this, or it is a combination of the aging bones, and other life stele activities. Any experience with this problem?
Not only am I an older 50 rider but I also am an older 50 career changer! Three years ago I went back to school at 52 years of age to get my Masters degree so I could create my equine consulting company Happy Horse Healthy Planet and follow my bliss!
That's fine Paula. I love to see people's comments about their experiences with products, horse-related or not!
Thank you so much for your comments. Karen would you be willing to make your Back On Track comment a testimonial for my website? May I use your comment? Please check out my website - http://www.besthorseproductsreview.com. I love Back On Track products. I've had my knee brace for almost eight years. I purchased another brace when I lost some weight. When my knee is really bad I wear it overnight. Sometimes both knees bother me so I wear both braces. They are still going strong even after a number of washes. How about you?
Paula - I love the Back on Track stuff. I have the ankle brace, gloves and socks. I have circulation issues and the gloves and socks really do help me stay unfrozen!
