Are you riding with scoliosis or maybe even having metal pieces in your back? If so, have you had an accident yet and what was the outcome?

I have a friend who had back scoliosis and now has her back fused. She's competing in show jumping and hasn't had a bad fall yet, but idk if she has fallen off schooling or anything. If she has she's fine and she had that surgery about 4 or 5 years ago. I'd talk to your doctor about your risks and possible dangers if you have rods in your back. A riding impact vest is never a bad idea either
