    Sore hips :( any ideas????

    Pilates is definitely helping me - not one to one, but a very small group (5 at the most). Out of interest, what saddles would you recommend?

    Sore hips :( any ideas????

    Hi Sol. That's really interesting, thanks! I really love my treeless too. Made of memory foam so moulds itself to us both and the added bonus is that I get his warmth through it. Just no real support. I will def consider this next! Ps I'm from Worcs but have done 3 riding hols in Shropshire...

    Sore hips :( any ideas????

    Oh my goodness... Ok I take it back!!!! Agree I need to find a saddle that suits me... If the hip saver doesn't work am going to sell all saddles (except the freemax as that's extremely comfy) and invest in a Wow saddle!

    Sore hips :( any ideas????

    Oh I have... And a Physio, and all the rest lol... Started Pilates a couple of months ago and that is def helping me. I'm really hoping its something I can beat as I want much more time in the saddle... Maybe I'm just asking too much of my old body! I'm very envious of those lucky enough to...

    Sore hips :( any ideas????

    Mmmmm I ride long but if I shorten my stirrups I often feel that I look like I'm sat on a sofa chilling out hahaha. Tomorrow I will try the gfs with my stirrups up a couple of holes and see how that goes. Thanks CheeryP :)

    Sore hips :( any ideas????

    Ideas welcome :) I came to riding late in my life and have a 16.3 ID x cob (chunky monkey!). I had to have a saddle made to measure for us as he is very big in the shoulder and I am lanky... We have a straight cut Farrington working hunter saddle which is longer than usual top to bottom and...

    New to rugging, when should you put a rug on and what type.

    Bike riders 40 in one bunch!!!!!

    I also had a gaggle of around 40 cyclists come up behind me on a country lane while out riding this morning. They shouted to warn me they were there, were polite, friendly, considerate and neither myself nor my horse were a bit troubled by the experience... In fact once they had all passed by...

    What would really work?

    Those pictures are certainly shocking. I have shared he Ruby pic on my fb tonight, and do think more needs to be done to educate drivers. Personally I think ignorance is to blame in many situations... I would say that before I had horses I certainly wasn't as thoughtful and considerate passing...
