you know most of australias best riders are guys!
andrew hoy, for one,
i could name more but it probably wouldnt do a lot if your in another country.
when guys compete in eventing in astralia, they pretty much dominate it,
we have a lot of guys here that event, and show jump, not and many do dressage, and hardly any hackers.
but none ofthem are looked down upon. they are all much loved in the sport and they bing awesome competition!
well done, hold your head up high, and love every minute of it.
dont think or worry about what other people say, because otherwise you will never live your life to the fullest!
i have always been one for giving everyone a chance, i used to ballet dance with a guy, i moved to horses only, and i still see him winning scholarships in the paper, and doing realy well as a classical ballet dancer! and we have never once held the fact that he is a guy against him. infact we used to always stick up for him!
go for it!
live your life the way you want to, because you dont want to live the way other people want you to , as when you look back you will see you have lived a lie!
When you mix training and dedication your called... a professional
When you mix compassion and caring your called... a friend
When you mix bravery and selflessness your called... a hero
When you mix all three your called... A FIREFIGHTER!
