Sensitive Question...

I was just wondering about what your view was on this subject... Ummm, well, do you ride with your period? And what lengths do you go to make it comfortable? Like do you wear pads or tampons... Just curious!! It is very personal - so you don't have to answer okay?

Ride to live, and live to ride!

I use either one, depends on how I'm feeling. Riding distracts me from the discomfort.

I use tampons, I hate pads, esp while riding.
Haha, I actually don't ride during that time of the month, I just get so sensitive. So if someone in the barn even looks at me wrong or says "whats up" I just start crying my eyes out. =/ yeahhh...

Of course or else I would have never ridden. Some times pad, some times tampon.

Riding helped relax muscles that were having cramping issues etc.

Tampons always. No matter what I am doing. Alwaysbehind makes a good point about the relaxation of those muscles but sometimes I just don't feel like doing much of anything let alone go out to the barn and ride.

Tell a gelding. Ask a stallion. Discuss it with a mare.

I use whatever I happen to use that day... I don't ever notice a discomfort....

If I can help it, I don't ride at all. Because if I ever ride, I'll be riding on the trail and it's not like you can just run to the bathroom every 30 seconds if you need to O_O

I'll usually just stay at home and lunge Sunny, or clean his stall, or do some ground work. Keeps my mind off everything unpleasant.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.
