unable to open my legs side ways

While standing I can not open my legs side ways any more than 2.5 feet apart.
I can not open my legs up enough to ride a horse and in excruciating pain to mount a bike.
I have done nothing that may have caused this like an accident or sports.
It just appeared and has progressively gotten worse.
It takes at least an hour to acclimate to my standing position in the morning.
I have to ease into simple actions like lifting my legs to put on sock and pants.
I am unable to rotate my hips out.
I have done nothing about investigating this - It's been 10 years now that my hips have gotten tighter and tighter.
I don't know what type of Dr or specialist to consult.
Is this an orthopedist's specialty or a chiropractor's or a yoga teacher?

do you have a family doctor, because, he could give recomendations to see physio, chiroprator, orthopedic surgeon, whatever he decides, he'd probably want to perform xrays first. Because this i affecting everyday life and getting worse you should not put it off, see a doctor asap. it could be a number or things, muscles, tears, arthritis, whatever the case it's not good to ignore it because it's harder to fix things the longer you wait.note - I'm not a doctor.
hope you can get better
