Re: [RC] Calves and Lessons - Karen Everhart

It probably means that you are using your "knee extensors" (front of the thigh muscles) to post or 2-point, rather than the hip extensors in the gluts and hamstrings.  It could also EASILY mean that your stirrups hang at a forward angle and you have to "brace" through your knee to stay up or post up.

Hey Angie,

 What does it mean when the front of your upper legs (thighs) hurt like heck after a 100 mile ride? Does this mean we are riding more correctly?  If so, then Ron Chapman and I must be ready for the US Equestrian Dressge team or something. As bad as our legs hurt today, we must be ready for the Olympics.
