(Men) Uncomfortable in Breeches

My 15 year old brother and I switched fro Western to English, and I love wearing breeches. However, he found that riding, specifically trotting and the sort make his
....uhhh ...uncomfortable

Any suggestions? He's a boxers kinda guy, but is wondering if boxer briefs might help?

Thanks

Im not a guy, but I'd say to try the boxer briefs. Also, English saddles tend to sit you up a bit straighter than a western saddle- he may need to adjust his seat a bit. He shouldn't be sitting on his "boys," and if he is he needs to rotate his hips back a bit.. Hope that makes sense. I had to teach my husband that!

Thought that you might be interested in this thread. It was posted sometime ago, but it is still relevant and somewhat humorous. Male rides...how do you protect your "guy's"

I think I watched a video one time about the differences of women's English saddles from men's saddles.. They're shaped differently or something (I ride western) and if a guy rides in a "women's" saddle, it can be rather uncomfortable for the "boys". But I'm also a western rider and have only seen an English saddle in real life like 3 times.

Also suggest polo-style breeches. They're half-jean-half-breeches, very comfy and good-looking.

It is also possible to ride English in jeans, unless you doing it competitively.
