Guy's riding

i found this on another website with a mainly male group of members shttp://www.militaryhorse.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7092 I wanted to show yall another point of view about whay ain't more guys riding and what you thought about their believes and point of view.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Personally I think the main reason more guys don't ride is because their not exposed to it at a young age. They grow up with football and soccer and by the time they reach their teenage years their too embarrassed or ignorant to be seen doing a "girls sport".

Alot of the guys that i know ride all the time but they have never even seen an english saddle before because thats "sissy stuff" they think that the western way is the manly way and whatnot. Personally i could care less i feel at home in any saddle english or western....never really understood why guys couldnt be that way either.
