Ok, baby, get you a pair of tight fitting Wranglers or Levi's, boots, a cowboy hat, and get to searching for that perfect horse. Assuming you're the "cowboy" type which I hope you are. Women will love to have a guy to ride with, don't know if it was this forum or another, but I read a post from a female, asking why there are so few male riders. Don't even worry about what anyone else says, let them think you do it as a "chick magnet". I myself, could never resist a cute, sexy cowboy. I once had a job, and the other ladies in the office were all talking about how they liked their men to dress. Most said a 3 piece vested suit,I said my man would wear tight fitting jeans, western shirt, boots and a cowboy hat!!! Good luck, and keep us posted on how ot goes.

OP, like I said before and others have said since, quit worrying about what others may think. The sooner you learn this, you will be happier on life.

Since you are still young, enjoy life. Try new things like riding. Once life's obligations and commitments, like a job/career, marriage and kids happen, you won't have as much time to try new things out.

When I was in high school, many years ago, I couldn't wait until I was done. When I started college, I wished I was back in high school. I still wish at times now to be that young again and to have the freedom I did then.

So just get out there and start enjoying!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ THIS! This is what made me say you really have no idea what is going on out in the world. Because, "YOU JUST DO NOT KNOW" and to claim you do is closed minded. I am really done with this. I am not gay, I am a mother of two and a step mother of two. Daughter is probably older than you are and I was trying to help you, not argue with a child. I am done! Good luck!

And she'll keep you too busy stretching your riding skill to worry about some weenie on the sidelines of life!

I seriously agree with this. If you can't worry more about the horse and what it's doing than what people say about you, go find another sport. Riding is dangerous. When on a horse, especially when are just starting out, one should be 100 percent focused on the horse.

Statistically more new riders than experienced riders get seriously hurt.

And like bsms, I started riding only six or seven years ago when I was 49. That statistic spurs me to learn more and become better, really for my own safety. The side benefit is that I just love it.
