I had mine pierced, well I still do but I never wear anything in it.

The only time it has ever really got in the way is sliding on things (backwards), but thats something you could easily avoid whilst riding.

The first time I got it pierced it didn't heal properly, it was always getting irritated, but then I took it out and got it pierced over the scar tissue and it had no problems.

I wouldn't get it done again, it seemed so important and cool when I was 14, but now its just rather pointless I think.

Ive had mine for 6 years and haven't had a problem with daily riding. It is just a regular bar with no dangling charms.

I personally think that is takes longer than a month for them to fully heal. I had a pretty bad fall where I rolled under her and she while stepping over me, kicked me in the butt mid roll to send me over a few more times. My bellybutton was pretty angry for a while after that and pretty much reopened. This was about 9 months from having it done.

As long as you properly care for it and keep it clean. You shouldn't have any problems.

I think that it took a good year for mine to to COMPLTELTY healed! It was rediculous but bring on summer so I can show it off now :P

I have had mine done a year and a half ago. I never had any problems with it. It hasn't gotten irritated or infected. Mine was healed in a few weeks.

I do work with a lot of dogs. (I'm a veterinary technician and I also do agility/rally/obedience/etc with my Shetland Sheepdogs,)

I've been waiting for it to catch on something but that hasn't happened yet. It hasn't been a problem riding and I do have a very long dangle in at the moment. I frequently wear belts of all sizes and have never had a problem.

I always figured if it was going to catch on anything the most likely time would be when I am sliding down from the horse- the ones I ride are quite tall so its not a short trip to the ground!!
