Can anyone with any medical knowledge advise me re pulled muscle please?

I pulled my inner thigh muscle while horse riding on Friday, sharp pain and felt it start to go. I've been icing and taking NSAID's since,and while I'm walking around its just a dull ache now.

The problem is it is one of the main muscles used when riding, and I am meant to be competing tomorrow. Is there any chance that if I do go tomorrow I will get away without making it worse? I tore the muscle a couple of years ago, and I am terrified of that happening again but I really want to compete tomorrow. It seems daft not to go because of what is just a pulled muscle, but I don't want to go and end up in agony for weeks again.
