Dressage riding and fibromyalgia

Does anyone else ride horses. Does it help or hurt?

 

conniehurts - September 13

I don't ride anywhere near dressage level but I do ride whenever I can. I had to start out with like 5 minutes at a time and build up but it definitely helps me with pain level, emotional state and strength. I am not a person who will just sit and do exercises but get me near a horse and I will push myself a lot more!! Because of my strength and balance issues I do have a side walker who can handle my horse from the ground while I concentrate on keeping myself in the saddle if he acts up. Riding is great therapy!!!
