It's time for a top notch WHINE. My shoulders are absolutely KILLING me. I think it's from trying out the new saddle this past week. I should have been wearing proper boots & attire and waited until the leaping head was bent correctly. That will teach me.
I think I was compensating by hunching my shoulders and having a bit of a tug-o-war with my mare did't help either. They were sore the next day and have been progressively sore-er since.
I attended a riding clinic on the weekend and he worked on getting me to sit taller, open my shoulders and not get into a tug-of-war. We had lovely, easy rides and everything felt great....except for my shoulders afterwards!! Just not sure why they are so darned sore!
I think it's time to go for a massage or perhaps try some accupuncture. My shoulders are in absolute knots and very sore. Last night I took a muscle relaxant and slept on a heat pack. I feel a little better than I did yesterday except I feel like I slept on a heat pack lol.
The things we put ourselves through for riding! (But I sure wouldn't give it up!)
