It's the whole "what kind of person are you?" thing. It's like jocks, preps, emos, cowboys and such. It's a clashing of the cliques, I guess. They're not used to seeing it, so the first thing they will do is judge. When you think of a horse enthusiast, you don't think of a face full of metal, or covered in tattoos. You think boots and spurs. So, I guess it's unconventional for a rider to have piercings/tattoos, which sparks the criticism.
