Saddle Soreness is a topic rarely discussed among female riders - but unfortunately for many it is a common and frustrating problem.
Anja Mönch, the inventor of Smooth Ride functional underwear, has actively worked as a qualified instructor in the field of equestrian sports for over 20 years. She has 3 children of her own, and after giving birth she developed the protective underwear from her own very painful experiences.
"It is often misunderstood that all saddle soreness is caused by incorrect form in the saddle or defective equipment. In many cases it is a result of the anatomical shape or changes in a riders pubic area," explains Anja. "My goal was to create a product where nothing will constrict, compress or rub, the solution in the crutch is invisible and it will help as many women as possible."
A free and relaxed seat is the most essential connection between horse and rider - only through this is it possible for your horse to fully relax and perform with comfort and vitality. Smooth Ride functional underwear was born and finally there is a product to help relieve the pain and damage caused by saddle soreness for female riders.
Anja was quick to discover another role for Smooth Ride underwear - cycling.
"Every woman probably knows how uncomfortable and painful long bike rides or spin class can be - especially wearing incorrect underwear. Here our Smooth Ride underwear fits perfectly and helps ease the pain of saddle soreness."
