Male friend and I both knew to riding, he claims its easier for men to ride because..
 
Male friend and I both knew to riding, he claims its easier for men to ride because women are going to have so much more bouncing than men, and I'll admit that when we do ride I dont feel like I'm getting enough bra support but its just annoying that he claims women have it so much harder in riding.

That's obviously an uneducated opinion.

There's no gender that riding is easier for. I can ride eons better than my boyfriend but my guy friend can ride circles around me.

Tell him to trot a horse once and then see how his balls are holding up :p

He is definitely not an expert on horseback riding as he is brand new just like me, but I do understand his point about the breast problem.

Does that affect guys a lot when riding? He didn't complain at all about it on our first ride

I would rather have my bouncy bits on my chest where I can strap them down rather than have them in my lap when I'm riding!

Try wearing a sports bra OVER your regular bra.

Wait until you get to trot and canter work and see who's laughing then ;)

I think it was dumb of me not to wear a sports bra, this was my first time and I dont really play any sports so I dont wear them very often.

Is trot and canter work harder to do or something?

Trot work is a lot bouncier, especially when you're first learning how to sit the trot.

So do all women wear a sports bra? I guess he was kinda right

He is correct that men tend to be better riders, just not for that reason. Men tend to sit more correctly with their pelvis neutral because they have to keep their junk out of the way while women tend to ride with their pelvis tipped more forward, therefore out of alignment in terms of balance.

so its physically easier to guys to ride or they just tend to sit more correctly? He was just making fun of me because I had so much uncomfortable bouncing while he didnt

Guys tend to sit with their pelvis in neutral position, meaning not tipped forward or backward. A neutral pelvis position gives your body the shock absorbers to sit the trot much easier than someone who has their shock absorbers blocked one way or the other.
