Hi! I grew up riding English in Sweden. I never remember that my butt would get very sore unless I went on a bareback ride or something like that. However whenever I’ve ridden in a western saddle recently as an adult my butt literally cannot handle it LOL. I did invest in a fleece saddle cover which helped a few years ago when I did some riding. I’m about to get started riding again, mostly trail and such but not on my own horses. Looking for anything that can help with not getting saddle sores. Its usually not the muscles that are hurting for me, but I have a very so to say bony butt, with my seat bones not having much cushion at all.
Has anyone tried using biking shorts to see if that helps?
From what I remember of using my fleece pad it felt like it moved around a bit much and would come off during trot etc. But maybe there are better brands out there that has something sticky on the underside…
Ideas are super welcome
