Don’t be embarrassed, that stuff happens, though it happens a lot less, to not at all, once you learn to ride better.

These posts kill me! You've benn dragging those things around your whole life dude....... don't tell me this is the first time they have been ouchy. You think she made a joke of things? What would your male buddies have said? They would bust your chops about it for days, they certainly wouldn't cut you any slack.

It just baffles me that a guy gets on a horse the first time and gets embarrassed cause he smacked the ol bean bag off the saddle...... Sack up!

This thread has give me a good giggle.
Its no different to us ladies who are generous in the chest area - strap em down - it works for us.
And yes, i've had 4 children - so have had the "slight" discomfort down there too :) haha
I'd go with the bubble wrap - and have fun - don't take it too seriously - just enjoy yourself :)

Ya know the bubble-wrap isn’t such a stretch as it might seem. One of my uncles, who isn’t a horse person at all was at my other uncle's cattle station and decided he was going to help us muster cattle one day. He was worried about chafing and a sore backside and nether regions from the saddle. He got a pair of his wife's stocking and managed to fit into them, then somehow managed to stuff pieces of foam rubber down them till he looked like he was wearing a nappy under the stockings. And managed to fit the whole lot into a pair of jeans. I don’t think it helped him much in the end, but it was funny watching him try to ride.

No, it isn't a common thing for us female's to tease you about, in fact, when I was younger and did a lot of trail rides with my Dad, I was the girl to ride with if you were male, quiet, or shy, as I didn't make fun of others, I wasn't loud or rude or rush my horse and took everyone into consideration, still do in my middle age adulthood.

Asking my husband, who rides on occasion, he too said that if you wear brief's they will tuck your giblet's closer to your body so they aren't free or loose. Maybe even a pair of riding shorts, like the kind long distance bikers ride in, under your jeans may help, and they do have a little bit of padding to them too.

If you are that worried, invest in a sheepskin saddle seat cover, that too offers protection and comfort.

Good luck and let this roll off your back like a duck in water. If you don't give her the satisfaction of it bothering you then hopefully she will stop teasing you, as I know that some are more sensitive about those things than others.

bahaha, the first time my man went riding with me he had said he knew how to ride. So I took him on a night ride to which we galloped at full speed down the trail which had wet ground. So long story short, my horse was faster, and he ended up getting pelted with tons of dirt clods before almost falling off. We laugh about it now but, at the time he thought I was trying to kill him (he’s still a little sore about it when I poke fun at him about the incident lol). You know how the saying goes though just try again. It’ll all come together eventually

Posting while trotting...male riders

Tighter underwear helps. A saddle that has some room helps:



For a good description of how to ride, I like Gen Harry Chamberlin:

Or Littauer:
