Well, women do a whole lot of things that can cause the boobs to cavort about, 
including riding a horse. However, even meditating women have heard of the 
'brassiere' and if things get a little wild in the mammary department they 
could always don a sports bra. So, I am not sure I buy the explanation of the 
impetuous breasts having a mind of their own while their owner bounces along on 
a piece of impact-friendly foam that would be the reason to exclude women from 
this otherwise equal-opportunity sport.

Oh geez, sounds like the 1800's.

No, I have not yet had the privilege to witness white women walking around in 
saris in Iowa. If ever an anachronism existed this could be a favourite.
