Belly button piercings

Who has had one?

And did it interfere with your riding?

I want... No. I NEED to know.

I have one and I have only hurt it once in the last 9 months I've had my horse. I was getting off a western saddle and when I slid down it caught on some piece on the side. Cut the skin next to it thankfully.

But when my puppy was little and I had only had it pierced for a few months, I was carrying her and she kicked it and it ripped a bit. I now have a permanent scar and it's not quite far enough in as it should be.

But I usually wear breeches and they cover my belly button. Oh and mine took a year to heal.

I have one. Have had it since I was 15 so...8 years. I've had some scary experiences with it. I had a dangley ring in while barrel racing. I was also wearing a belt. One of the charms got stuck in my belt when I was leaning forward galloping. When I went to slow up (by sitting straight) I couldn't move without ripping it out. I finally got my horse to slow down and by then, it had slipped loose. I thought it was a goner for about 30 seconds. I won the class though. LMAO.

I now only wear a stick. And sometimes I take it out to ride. If I remember that is...

I have mine pierced. It never interfered with my riding. I haven't worn a dangley one yet though.

i had one last year, the only thing it hurt for me, was getting on bareback, i lay my belly across the horses back. that really hurt! i don't know if would have gotten any better, my body pushed it out. looking into getting another one :)

Having horses means: There is always hay in your bra. And you're never quite certain on how it got there.
You realize that you just clucked at the dog

I had one for about a year but ended up taking it out because it wouldn't heal. I never had a problem with riding though. Just be aware tgat its there.

Mine has been pierced for about 7 or 8 years. The only time I've really had a problem with it when I was riding was when I caught a saddle horn to the belly on a bucking horse. That made it pretty darn sore for a few weeks...but the rest of my belly around it was sore too.

Other than that, not a single problem, but I only wear the dangly type of rings when I know I'll be going out with someone where I might want to show it off.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

I've had mine pierced for ten years... holy crap! Really.. Man.. Didn't seem like that long..I'm getting old..Anyway, I've never had a problem with it riding.. I had a few problems with it catching my belt even when sitting down if I were wearing a dangley one..I had more problems with my shirts catching on it than I did anything.. I have an odd looking one in right now..It's a dangley one but it's a solid curvy bar..Not very girly but cute.. but I'm the one that likes SOME piercings and tattoos...
