    I'm actually going to be subbing on this. I'm dying to get my bf to ride with me, but the 2-3 times he has tried it he said it is "way to painful" and doesn't want to do it anymore. I never considered that his boxers might be part of the problem. He is really supporting of my riding and everything, I just would love to get him a trail horse and have him ride with me.

    Guys: does it make a huge difference in 'that area' between western and english? He has only tried western. I don't really see him ever getting up into an English saddle, but I'm curious if you can feel a difference. (I ride both, but I mean difference as in more or less painful) I'd love to turn my bf into a horse person, but somehow I don't think he will ever take to it quite like I have.

    I have never had this problem, I see lots of guys (beginner) riders doing the "guy back pocket ride" to save them selves the pain. I don't know but when I have a problem its only when the horse jumps or bucks I have smashed one but when it happens. I KNOW IT!!!!! I have never had the problem of it pain after riding. I am surprised . Just to make sure are you saying you have trouble with pain after riding or during riding? IF during, you got to get them out of the way, I know how I ride you have to SORRY play with it really really sorry, to find what works for you. Don't ride on your pockets get into a good balance position and work where every thing needs to be. Best of luck, this is one area that lessons can't help. If this is a pain issue after riding I have no idea.

    I always love the very pragmatic advice Cowboy Bob gives. He doesn't mince words, but doesn't get too gory, either.

    I have nothing useful to add but it is so nice to read a "what to do with the boys" thread, being a regular poster on "How to control the girls when trotting" threads it's actually good to hear of other issues

    And I LOVE the terminology I am sitting here giggling away.

    OP, I do hope you get it (them) sorted out, there are many many male riders, so the answer is out there
