Yeah I just looked at your profile to see how young you are. Wait till you get older. I always wondered why they sell funny card with women's saggy boobs but not a man's saggy ahem's. Seems women always get made fun of but not men. Must be men working at halmark

Am I the only woman giggling madly at this thread? =-)

That said, it's no different really then a woman wearing a sports bra while riding. It's always going to be more comfortable to 'tighten' things up a bit...even if you are struggling with position in the saddle. Most of the male riders I know use the sports briefs and properly fitting riding jeans and don't have issues. =-)

Lol. If no one else is giggling then they have no humor. This is really funny. My boyfriend rode once and we went on about a hour and a half trail ride. I asked him after if he was sore or hurt anywhere and he said he was fine. He wears boxer briefs. Those are kinda tight kinda loose maybe he would feel less trapped in those and they will keep everything "held in" better. Lol

The ladies may be giggling but the gents should be laughing out loud as the ladies try to tactfully discuss this subject!

But, tact be danged! If a guy (or a gal) is uncomfortable in the saddle and folks on the forum can help, well, we should discuss it like adults.

(OK, now I'm REALLY laughing!)

"Don't just feed it! Ride it!" And the People said "AMEN!"

That's a lot to catch up on.

He doesn't ride enough to work on his balance he maybe has time to ride once every couple months. The saddle is my trainers. I don't ride western so I have no use for a western saddle but from what it looks like it fits him pretty well. I guess I wouldn't know.

He can't wear anything tight fitting he gets sweaty and panicy he is literally claustrophobic in tight fitting clothes. He has always been like that. It has to be loose fitting so he can't wear impact prevention boxers. I've been telling him to just suck it up and sit up. He is a very upright rider when he rides. He's difficult in that sense. He's still willing to ride when he has the time though he just won't go faster than a walk.

Oh and my trainer is reading over my shoulder cracking up! This is a funny thread Im just trying to figure out how to make things more comfortable for sir stubborn. Haha

He does need to work on position and what not but his work keeps him away from having any time out to ride but once in a while
