Yes, I dealt with this post-fall. Recovered alright after lots of rest, anti-inflammatories etc and rode for 3 years afterwards, initially. However, it would flare up and cause me to limp while walking in the winter.
Somewhere around 2019, it flared up quite badly. Now, I believe this was partially due to the muscle waste during isolation, but it was triggered by me overstretching my hip inwards. The main issue was a sharp pain in the groin area that limited my mobility and felt like I had torn a ligament or tendon. After several periods of trying to ride and having flare ups, I finally went in to see a specialist and was diagnosed with trochanter bursitis and his explanation for the groin pain was residual ligament inflammation. Prior to diagnosis, I had x-rays and MRI; however, nothing showed up. I honestly really wasn’t sure I’d get back to riding again, as I was having troubles walking; however, I decided I was just causing re-occurring injury by continuing to ride. Ultimately, I decided to lay riding down for a rest, as my horse was also simultaneously being retired. I took about 3 years off.
I started back this September. Took on one heck of a project (unintentionally), but a well-minded green horse, who started out just needing walking/turning training. I did use voltaren and advil from time-time, when I first started back as a preventative measure to keep me going. We probably did that for 2 months before we started to ask for itty bitty trot steps. So far, so good! Now we are doing wtc and I can feel that my hip is stronger (muscle built a curve too!).
I do think taking a significant amount of time off did me well and I’d do it again. It really depends where your bursitis stems from, but where mine was from injury, it was definitely something that needed to fully heal prior to any kind of riding was done.
Side note is that I am extra careful not to stretch that hip internally or laterally, as that seems to be a trigger. I can still feel this is the weaker hip, but the pain hasn’t shown up this winter.
