Golf courses are a waste of good horse pasture in my opinion.

Whenever I see 'husband horse', I think of a horse which is not just eminently rideable, but also fairly tall. I can ride a smaller horse because I'm short, but my husband would need a horse both 'bomb-proof' and tall (my husband is 6'2").

First time I saw a Husband Horse ad the first thing I thought of was a spirited, high strung horse with a big motor.. when I read a couple of them I realized it was a funny way to say KID HORSE, Bomb Proof... I got a good laugh out of it and thought wow times have changed... all in fun..

That would have been my take on it. A horse that the wife wouldn't want to try to ride. My ex sure wouldn't have. She'd ridden for 35 years, but dreaded anything that wasn't calm and easy.

To me husband horse is a large easy going horse that can set out in pasture for a while and is dust and go. Might be a bit big for kids to be comfortable on, but otherwise would be similar in temperament to a good kids horse.

Nothing against male riders and saying they can't ride something more challenging - the term is more to catch the attention of us wives who are looking for a horse for our husbands who wouldn't normally own a horse if it wasn't for our horse crazy nature. And our husbands wouldn't even own a horse then except for the fact that is the only way they get to spend time with us.

Now a man who wants to ride horses of his own accord wouldn't need a husband horse. So its not a sexist term, but rather a marketing term.

Marketing a horse for my ex would be:
"Plug horse. Will walk calmly. Can be moved to a trot. Will take some effort to move to a canter. Will resist a gallop at all cost. Will do nothing that might create a situation that you could fall."

That woman worried almost as much about falling off as my 7 year old granddaughter did the first time I put her on a horse and walked it around. Had to get rid of her (the ex), because she was such a pain. Wanted to tell me how I could ride , because I didn't share her phobias . She rode well too, but just obsessed about getting hurt (she'd had a nasty spill in her youth from a spirited horse, but nothing broken so get over it ).

Exactly

When I was looking for my first horse as a re rider I would look for 'husband horse' description, because I would expect the horse listed to be a weight carrying type, who could carry a nervous larger older woman around no worries.

In my mind when used in that way it's a LARGE very very well broke horse.

For all the offended boys........ you are cowboys/riders when riding not husbands, but if you have one like I do... He needs one of those so called husband horses or else he will fling himself off of the horse if it goes faster then a walk without him asking and will swear it galloped and bucked him off when you are curled up in a ball laughing hysterically at him
