Can I persuade ya'll ladies to refrain from referring to this delicate condition as, "The Inverness Problem?" The term "Dressage Crotch" is much more appropriate don't you think?
I'm not terribly anxious to be forever remembered on this BB for injuries to the "community property."
BTW, Kennett Square may be facing charges for contributing to this "problem." Although at the tender age of twelve, I doubt that last night's unfortunate student will be suing for loss of consortium, but she clearly can make a case for intentional infliction of genital distress. Hmm, maybe even assault and battery with a mareish weapon . . .
Heh. heh heh.
If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
If I smell like manure, I tripped.
I ran into similar issues when I was doing competitive cycling. What we cyclists did to solve the problem:
1) use "Chamois butter" or other product to reduce chafing
2) Selection of underwear
3) Go commando.
#3 doesn't really work for equestrian sports, but #1 and #2 do. I will sometimes use a chamois butter type product along with underwear that is similar to what I used for cycling. Longer short type underwear with panels constructed so there are no seams in sensitive areas. That almost completely eliminates chafing and there are no panty lines either.
Really....I do #3 every day! I hate wedgies....and with a ghetto booty like mine there is no underwear that does not give me one...hehe
Ahhhhhh, threads like this are how you KNOW you are a COTH "veteran." When you see the word "sensitive" (or similar) in the dressage forum or someone is obviously embarrassed to bring up a "personal" topic, and your brain immediately shouts out, "INVERNESSSSS!!!!" you know you are officially a COTH veteran.
