I have one leg that is just not quite right. It functions more like I'm in my 80's than in my 40's. It will not hold my body weight when in a bend, and gives me enough issue when straight. really too many to get into, besides... what does it matter? it's a bum leg! We all have something that is an issue.
I can only imagine because of there being little muscle mass in that leg the hard western saddle I am using on my mare is pinching a nerve in that silly leg. I have started to use a sheep skin, doubled over for extra padding under my bum and under / down that leg. It makes my rides a little more bearable but not perfect as of yet.
I am at this point asking for hints, advise, and serious words on how I might deal with this physical issue a little better. We all know I'm not the only one with a bum leg riding a horse. So many ride that have no control over legs etc... I just need some ideas.
NO I can't get another saddle! not to mention $$$$$ but...
|THIS is the saddle in question! no padding at all!|
