Any men her who like dressage and jumping?.

I know I'm not the only guy into jumping and dressage. How many guys like this besides me. Cause it seems more girls like this type of stuff, while guys typically do rodeo stuff and such and personally I don't want to do that rodeo stuff. Nothing against the people who do though.

Well, just look at who were on the podiums at the WEG....just as many (If not more) men than women.

DH does more dressage than jumping but that's only because his knee problems mean he gets sore when he's riding with short stirrups. I board at a dressage barn and the women clearly outnumber the men, but this isn't a professional barn by any means. When you start looking at professional barns, those numbers even out a little more. It makes me wonder where those men learn?

I think it really depends on your location.
I rode for a long time in south Texas as an eventer and saw maybe 3 or 4 guys riding at shows in my 8-ish years eventing. I would assume there's a higher concentration of men on the east and west coasts that are riding english.

Bunch of guys around here. We have male trainers, male competitors, etc. If you go to western barn (like reining) - the majority is guys. Lol! But I agree, most people TAKING lessons are females.

Out of maybe a hundred people, I only know one guy who rides at all! ! It is very strange.

I don't mean to discourage you. I really don't understand why so few men ride where I live. I'm glad to hear its different in other places though!

Oh don't worry, you aren't discouraging me. I will always be a horse rider no matter what gender does it more or not.

Gosh I wish there were more!

I never see any here in the states (except for at Rebecca Farm or western events) but I saw quite a few at the horse trials down in New Zealand.

I still think they just come out magically on top. You never seem to ever see beginner male riders in the english discipline, just the pros.

Yeah we need more males.

My first coach was male...rode in nice tight breeches!!!

Where I first took lessons (in the UK) there were loads of male riders. I'm my beginner class alone we had at least 2 and sometimes more. In the advanced class there were 4 I think and 2 of them were really good.

Where I am now (in the US) I have yet to see a guy take a lesson, it's sad really. My barn has a distinct lack of men :(
