Maybe your friend is lacking in the 'male bits' department.

Are you both taking lessons together, renting horses or bought your own?

Maybe if you keep it at a walk until you learn some of the basics you both will develop a better understanding of what you are doing on the back of a horse and all your "parts" won't be flying all over the place. I'm sure your horses will appreciate it also.

at least women don't have to worry so much about sitting on their tender bits

Are male riders typically cockier than females?

It’s the other way around in my experience. Not saying always like that, but a higher proportion of the women I have met who ride tended to think they were pretty good than the men.

I have a smaller chest and don't wear a sports' bra but for larger chests, it's better to have extra support.

Also women aren't inferior, nor are men. We each have our strengths and weaknesses. I find it creepy that he's making those comments though. If I knew him, I'd tell him to quit it or he'd be riding alone.

Both men and women can be cocky. Don't make blanket assumptions please.

First off, you won't be laughing because he falls off - you'll be laughing because he'll be curled up in a fetal position from the pain. That'll be the end of him telling you that girls have it tougher because of boobs.

As for the bouncing boobies comments -- tell him he'll never learn how to ride horses if all he thinks about is riding women. Now is that too crass for this this forum? I don't know, but your bf sounds like a piece. Tell him to get over himself and the whole man thing already.

Seriously now, for your own benefit, it would probably be a really good idea to invest in a good sport bra. I am small busted, so don't have the bouncing problem, but I know many women that do and they have all kinds of solutions. Before really good sports bras came out, I knew a girl that would wear her bra, then a t-shirt, then have a friend wrap her boobs down with duct tape so she could play baseball.

OH, and when your bf is in that fetal position, just laugh. Don't offer up any solutions. He doesn't deserve any.
