Dude i was in the same boat as you 2 months ago. Never rode before always wanted to when i was a kid so i finally did it. Didnt think twice about what people thought. funny thing is the posts above are correct. GIRLS LOVE IT. my female friend who rides says girls go crazy when they see a good looking dude riding. AND ive had first hand experience at my barn. EVEN WITH A HELMET ON!! haha. I also first volunteered at a therapeutic riding the orentation ALL chicks i was the only dude...and the one girl even asked my why am i here i was like to help kids ride? and she was like noo whats your angle....i laughed and said there wasent any seriously. They thought i was trying to pick up girl at this place....but man just dont worry what people think and go have fun...its amazing once an horse starts to trust you....hope this helps!!

From another DUDE rider!

Wow. Didn't even know this thread was still going. Yeah I've been riding for a while now and it's been great.

Ya know, I bought a convertable for my chick magnet, but my horses have been better magnets and always get more female visitors than I do.

I woke up one day at age 26 wanting to learn how to ride. No idea why. Had never had a horsy thought before. 20 years later still at it.

I deserve an award. I read all the pages. All 30.

I loveee geldings. They are my choice of gender. The first lesson horse I rode about 6 months ago, was a gelding. He was part clydesdale and part tb. He had hard sides, and man DID he kill my legs for someone who hasn't ridden in 8 years.

Now I'm riding a mare, she's in her 20's. She could give anyone a run for her money. She's a very tough mare, not everyone wants to handle her. I love the horse world, every horse is different with their own quirks and personalities. And they all have something different to offer to teach.

We have 2 men at our barn who ride regularly- no it's not weird. One is 73 years old and he rides almost every day. The other one is our farrier.

Some reasons dudes should try riding:
- It's super fun.
- Horses have swag.
- Good workout #sixpackabs
- Get to work with lots of ladies ;)
- It's dirty.
