How important is it to wear a Sports Bra while horse riding? August 13 2016
Four in 10 female horse riders experience breast pain while in the saddle, the recently published findings of an online survey suggest.
Many riders may feel a sports bra is an unnecessary luxury and save their money for other more ‘essential’ pieces of kit.
However horse riding, (like other high impact sports), results in a lot of vertical chest movement and without proper support from a specially made undergarment this can become very uncomfortable for the rider and result in lasting and irreversible damage to the breast tissue.
