Brand New Rider, Embarrassed with "Man" Pains
I'm 25 years old and recently my mom bought us a package of 10 lessons, she had been a rider earlier in her life but hadn't done it in a while.
The first few lessons were fine when we were just walking with the horse.
We have recencently started trotting and on more than one occasion I've landed on the family jewels while bumping up and down. Needless to say it wasn't fun. Its pretty embarrassing to tell my mother I just racked myself so when it happens and she can tell I'm in obvious pain I just tell her that I have a stomach ache. I figure female riders don't have much experience dealing with pains in that delicate area.
Any advice? I guess I should be wearing something other than gym shorts, too flop flopping around in those
