Ya'll are too funny! There is a great product called "Womens Anti-Monkey Butt". It's awesome. Cool, powdery and soothing. Until you develop some calluses the friction will continue to irritate, but this will help in the meantime.
If your breeches are fitting well, and your underclothes aren't rubbing, the rest is a matter of just getting through it.

Tiny, I've uttered that scream!. Ugh. I can get the same saddle sore when I ride in a different saddle as well, then be fine when I go back to my saddle.

Good for you for wanting to improve your riding!

Wear a sanitary pad and move it back a little further than you normally would.

I knew I could count on you guys!!

Today I'm wearing spanx under my normal riding breeches. And a lot of vaseline. More TMI!!! I should probably skip my lesson today, but I hate doing that. I'll just not do any stirrupless work and do a lot of 2-point. :)

SMROBS, I was wearing cotton undies and stretchy denim riding breeches (they are skin tight like non-denim type). I could never go commando while riding. Yikes.

I will have to find that Monkey Butt stuff. Thanks for the suggestions, y'all!

Go to a cycle shop. They will carry 'butt butter'. Cyclist riding the Tour probably use it!

The elastic is rubbing from your undies?

I'm serious about the panty horse. It works. The Star Trek actor William Shatner, who's ridden and shown Am. Saddlebreds for years has been wearing them. He has no qualms about telling people about the difference wearing pantyhose makes. They're cheap, why not try them.

When breaking in a new pair of jogging shoes, I sometimes get my wife to get me some ankle high nylon foot thingies to wear under my cotton socks. I've never gotten blisters on my feet like that.

Those women's undies that mimic men's boxers work for some women. 40 years ago, those of us too modest to "go commando" had to compromise our ideals and wear men's boxers. Even back then, though, we could find them with hearts, rainbows, stars, shamrocks, etc.

The various powders are reported to help also. I haven't had the problem. Worst I even got was being in the south, in the summer, and elastic leg bands seeming to be determined to cut my legs off!
