Hi - Newbie here again.
Have finally started learning cross poles at a canter My 2 point is not still as strong as it needs to be, and a couple of times it was a little tender coming down on my front.
Is it normal or good idea for men to wear a cup when doing jumping .. I do have a feeling if I'm back far enough from the pommel like I'm supposed to be it might not be as big of an issue ... but need to ask. All the instructors and most (90%) of the riders at my barn are females.
