    Yes, that would have been a bit bizzard :))

    Fortunatelly (I guess) the female equestrians I've had interests in don't use my stable. One is a very successful instructor. One was a very successful instructor/competitor who is thinking about getting back into the business. One a very successful competitor and breeder. No, I wasn't seeing all of them at once :)) Am still friends with each and it has really only been the demands of in our respective lives (being single parents, working, running business, travel demand, etc....) that had kept anthing from developing with any of them. The price paid for being attracted to successful single equestrian moms. Maybe after I retire we'll see :) Then I can make my schedule fit my partners and I'll even be round to help out.

    Of course I ride a different discipline than any of them, but's ok with me. Most girls here tend to do English and males tend to do Western. It's all done on the back of a horse :)
    And I love watching the ladies posting and jumping in those tight pants (I didn't say that :)).....but come on, we guys know that you know that we look....and you know, that we know, that you like that we to look)
    Can't help it that we just wear jeans :) but those are the Western wear. (and yes, we know, that you know, we know you're looking....etc, etc :)) ect.... even in our jeans)

    It will still always baffle me that single men are learning ridie in record numbers. You have a lot better odds of meeting an interesting woman while riding then you will hanging out at the gym. And meeting over horses is a lot more romantic than meeting at the weight machine, etc....

    thank you and it'slbsnotmiles both!

    That makes sense that they would refer to it by discipline. I didn't realize they rode Western saddle in Europe. I can imagine how the bigger, heavier saddle must look to some people who've only seen English saddles.

    So don't be too hard on men who are interested in the single ladies that ride.
    I don't blame you for wanting to find a girlfriend that rides. And with the female rider population far outnumbering men, it wouldn't be any harder to find a female rider than non. Now for single women wanting to find a man that rides, that's a bit more challenging.

    When I first started taking lessons, my husband was joking and said, "Now don't go falling in love with some cowboy" I LOL'd and told him the barn was all women. Riders, instructors, even the lesson horses were mostly mares. It's a hormone fest pretty much.
