My BO and his father are male (<~~~ Duh!) and they ride bareback all the time. Also, my BF rode pretty comfortably yesterday bareback on my boy, even trotted for a minute and though he is sore today, haha, his 'extras' were just fine. I asked! :)

I think he'll be just fine. Do you have a bareback pad? That might help, if anything. I've never used one, so I don't know how MUCH it would help...

Greek warriors (think Xenophon) not only rode bareback, but did so without pants. I'll admit, I have no intention of every trying THAT!



"Next, when the rider is seated, he must, in the first place, teach his horse to stand quiet, until he has drawn his skirts from under him, if need be, (10) and got the reins an equal length and grasped his spear in the handiest fashion; and, in the next place, he should keep his left arm close to his side. This position will give the rider absolute ease and freedom, (11) and his hand the firmest hold."

I can ride bareback, but to be honest I don't want to on Nelson - man, being a female or male, that back will hurt any gender >.<

Lol.

My guy friend (whom I have a crush on O.O) came to meet Phantom and wanted to ride....we didn't have time to get the saddle cause we had to be somewhere so I just hooked a leadline to Phantom's halter and led him around bareback. First time on a horse, first time bareback, and he wants to do it again haha. He said he had so much fun. Never mentioned anything about the eherm "boys" hurting. Haha
