Sorry for the dumb question, folks, but does cup go under the pants or on top?

hahahahha!!!! Kitten, i just pictured a bunch of men running around with their cups on the outside of their pants!!! Now that would be quite a sight!!
They are worn under the pants. Thankfully.

I gave my close contact flat seat jumping saddle (Beval) to a guy friend of mine. He was starting to get into the jumpers and was having kinda' the same issue. The saddle change, and a few more lessons under his belt, and he had the whole em... well... twig and berries issue worked out.

This was a great read. you all are too much!

Except for Stiffen Peters who errrr....forgets the jock strap and gets..........ummm "excited" when he rides.

Makes for good Youtube watching though.

What bsms said. But that is what multiple people have told me and what makes most sense. If someone has some other opinion or different ideas than you, you don't need to get so flustered, Buzzby... my gosh.

My husband looks hot in breeches, & he said he's never hurt the family jewels while riding so I guess his instructor taught him to post correctly from the beginning. When he was trying on breeches at the tackstore, he had all the women working there waiting for him to come out of the dressingroom to see what they looked like. Looked just like a pair on men's pants with a tapered leg, but in all fairness, he did pull up to the tackshop on his harley wearing biker leathers, lol.

As odd as this sounds if a saddle is out of the option try moving the junk out of the way/to the side by wearing something a little tighter underneath for riding that'll hold it out of place? I know a few who tape theirs out of the way (Wrong time to walk in on that convo!) to me that personally sounds painful to get off, but maybe there's a not so harsh tape? Or just a tighter underwear maybe. Best I can offer~

Just the thought will leave me walking funny for hours! If tighty whities don't do the trick, then perhaps the guy should trade riding horses for a future in XXX films...

Tape???!!!! It would take a LOT of beer to get me to try that! And even more to recover from it.
