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.
