Ok -- since I don't know any serious male riders and obviously, I have no experience in this, how can I help my 11 yr old son?
He prefers to ride bareback or with a bareback pad. Trouble is, those extra parts he has are being slightly abused. Do any of you guys out there have some advice I can pass on to him? Is there a better riding posture he could use to avoid those crushing moments? Is he perhaps too stiff? Not stiff enough? Would a jock strap help? He has taken a real interest in riding the last few weeks and I don't want him to get discouraged.
