Shorts for a newbie to buy?????

I'm going to a dude ranch next week with my family. I was looking for a some shorts with padding to cover my butt. Any suggestions? We will be riding a few hours each day. Thanks from a newbie

Do not wear shorts unless you want massive chafing on the inside of your legs.

And don't worry about padding your butt. It's your groin that's going to hurt and no amount of padding is going to help that. Only time in the saddle, that gets your groin muscles to stretch that way, will prevent that pain.

I'm sorry, I left out that I was going to wear jeans. Thanks for the tip.

Advil will be more useful than padded shorts.

There was some brand of padded undershorts that somebody brought up before. I think it was Joe.

I've also heard that "compression shorts," like what many cyclists wear, work well for horseback riding.

I'm female, ride in a Tucker saddle and I ride a gaited horse. . .so I've never had a need for them.

Have fun on your trip!

Are you male or female ?
The saddle bums are very nice for a man under other pants. They prevent rubbing and protect the inside of your thighs from the seam in jeans. They have a bit of tail bone padding and hold your privates up tight like and athletic support. THey are a bit warm in that area in the summer. I wore mine under baseball pants before it got hot.

I am a guy. Thanks everybody. I think I'm going to order the saddle bums.
