Quoting this from Barry's post: In return I have admired a lot of horses when I have not noticed the female owner even when sometimes she was sitting on the horse.
I had to laugh out loud. I'm guilty of doing the same thing RE men riders, especially if they were riding a great horse. Could describe the horse and remember its name and history later, but had no recall whatsoever about the guy. So, maybe fellas trying to meet lady equestrians should carefully consider whether the horse they ride will keep them from being noticed at all!
