Hello folks. Since everyone here is showing their scars and wounds, I might as well ask if any of you happened the same thing. I was riding for the first time, almost a month ago.The jumpy horse and an uncomfortable saddle, coupled with my total lack of any previous riding skills, made so that I accidentally squashed my "nuts" while the horse was trotting (as I was a complete beginner, I was bouncing inconsolably during the trot; the canter was lovely though). Now the thing is, they occasionally hurt from time to time, only a mild pain. I'm a bit worried as it's almost a month now.
Also, I'd really appreciate tips on how to avoid this and to know whether it's serious or not.
