    Yeah lol unfortunately.

    I was actually like doubled over on the horse, trying to be as "manly" as I could about it, especially because almost everyone in the class was women. I don't want to look like a wimp afterall

    I suggest not slamming down in that area!
    Rise then GENTLY settle. LOL!
    I taught DH to ride, bareback, for a solid week trail riding. He quickly figured out how to "adjust".

    Girls can get hurt just as badly "down there", not sure why guys think their bits are more fragile? I've had some tear jerking, lip biting, almost passed out moments, thing is, girls just suck it up buttercup.

    Two words: Strong Core

    When you use your abs, you can affect your leans and can focus on sitting more back than forwards.

    I hope you have fun riding :)

    REALLY? Come on. Yeah we can get hurt there too but don't even start to pretend we're just as sensitive to pain as guys, because we're not. Not even close

    I've never had any kind of 'ouch' moment while riding, either. I mean occasionally some chafing after a day in the saddle, but nothing 'tear jerking, almost passing out.' Quite frankly I'm GLAD I'm not a guy when I ride LOL

    Believe me I'm not trying!!! Lol

    Its when the horse starts trotting faster than I kinda lose control of my seating and that's where the bouncing happens

    I am under the impression that the pain of contact to the male gonads is of a greater degreee than the female. But in any case, no one wants to ride theier tender bits on the saddle and grind them into the hard places. This is a more common issue that anyone would admit.

    If you hang out a bit some of the male riders will weigh in and tell you how they deal with it. And, the must do it, becuase over the ages, most riders have been men. So, there must be a way of making it comfy.

    In a saddle girls don't have as hard a time avoiding that pain, but bareback is a different story. I can't tell you how many times I've hit my horse's withers...

    You fix this problem the same way you fix the problem of people not being able to sit the trot...relax your hips and lower body. You are bouncing because your legs and hips are tight and rigid. Don't think, relax, and your body will follow the movement of the horse.

    I am a woman but yrs ago discovered the padded undergarments cyclist wear. They are awesome I ride trail and am in the saddle for 8 plus hours! I also do yoga and that will make your core stringer and help your riding

    As a fellow male rider, your under garments are not the issue.

    A few things may be though....

    Seat first and foremost, your style of saddle, and feel free to adjust as needed!

    Only bareback has this been an issue for me, I'm sure others have had similar troubles, but I ride pain free 99% of the time.
