    My boyfriend started riding a month or so ago and is having problems with the rising trot, if you know what I mean!!!!! :p

    He is wearing lycra skin tight boxer shorts at the moment but still keeps catching his bits.

    Any ideas?

    hmmmm..... my OH is about to start riding again after many years out of the saddle, he was but a wee boy the last time he rode so not sure he would have noticed any 'interferance' in those days - will have to keep my eye on him!

    I was hoping there would be a less brutal solution. Think he would rather post pics ha ha

    He could always wear padded shorts like my O/H wears when he's cycling, then again there's no rising trot on a bike.

    the padded cycling shorts are a good idea :)

    my friend says he wears cotton boxers with an elastic waist and uses the elastic to hold everything out of the way :p i cant say I'd know if that was uncomfortable or not but he doesn't ever complain hehe

    Even though im "old,stupid and past it" :rolleyes: ill still offer some advice.

    Could he be rising and falling wrong,could he modify his position to maybe lean slightly further back so as not to catch himself on the pommel,it sounds to me as if he is tilting forward.

    Men get nasty belly ache when they catch themselves,have to say it cracks me up every time,when it happens!!!!! :D :D :D

    To which side does he dress? Will it help if he dresses to the other side?

    If this is no help could he customise his saddle by cutting out a hole in the seat to give more freedom......

    Sorry cant keep my face straight any longer PMSL.....obvious to all I'm a female :D:D:D

    Hmmmmmmm, certain to give you lot a good laugh but it DOES hurt when you catch yourself. Saddles today don't allow for male riders on the whole, when I trained 21 years ago we were shown how to make a "gentleman's" riding saddle and as we formed the seat with webbing etc we had to allow "ball" room by leaving a dip in the seat for your tackle to sit in, this is the traditional way to make a men's riding saddle but in the modern world there is no such thing of course, has he tried a gel seat saver?
    Might cushion the blow a bit.
    I have the same problem if I slam my brakes on in an emergency on my Triumph Thunderbird, you slide up the seat and slam your wedding tackle against the tank, that smarts a bit too!

    The American calvalry had the right idea in the Maclellan saddle, although it was hard on your seat bones the middle part of the seat was missing so if you were "well endowed" everything could hang down the middle and keep cool at the same time.
