Will going horseback riding be bad for a 2-year-old hip replacement?
I am not a doctor, as a matter of fact, I am a hip relpacement patient. Surgery 10 years ago and doing fine, still obeying the 90s rules. I am about to start riding again, and have the same questions. I feel weak in the hip/lower back area, so plan on starting with mild walking trail rides to build strength. I think as long as I obey the 90s and dont fall off, I can only get stronger. I hope more folks see this post and provide some feed back; I will update as we get into spring and I get more practice. I rode ALOT when young, so it is all coming back to me- muscle memory is long and strong. good luck
