38. Rider Hip Pain with Kerri Lemons Have you been told you need a hip or knee replacement? Becky&#8217;s friend, Kerri, was in just this situation. Kerri had a total hip replacement about eight years ago. Recently, she found out that she needs to have the procedure revised. However, due to her busy schedule and the recovery time needed to get the surgery done, she wasn&#8217;t willing to lose yet another summer. While she was at Becky&#8217;s place for a horsemanship clinic, Kerri mentioned that her hip had been giving her a lot of trouble when it came to riding. After a quick evaluation, Becky did some exercises with Kerri to activate her hip muscles and control the motion of the thigh.
