In brief: Not unless you fall!
A plica is a loose fold in the synovial tissue and capsule that can be repetively pinched by the joint motion, causing severe pain.
Plica usually arise from having fluid on the knee, secondary to inflammation, or trauma. Did you injure your knee in a fall? Have you known of an episode when your knee felt full and tight? Simply riding horses does not cause this, unlless you fall!
