    I think it great that you love to ride. My two best friends from pony club were both males. But I must admit you are very outnumbered ( which could be a good thing ) but I say don't hide it life is too short to be worrying about what other people think if you love it go for it

    I agree with everyone here. You should be proud of what you do. As said, men basically dominate the sport. Of course there are many women out there even at higher levels but, the majority are men.

    I had two parents (obviously lol) and which one taught me to ride??? My dad! :) who taught me sooooo much of what I know?? My dad and my dads race horse trainer who is, a man. Even now, my trainer is a man.

    My husband is learning to ride as well and the only thing he wont do is wear jodphurs lol

    Whether you're a cowboy or a refined dressage rider, riding a horse with a 1000 pounds of raw energy underneath you is quite a macho thing ;)

    If none of your friends think riding is manly, theyre probably just jealous lol

    I think it's great that guys ride! And like everyone else that's replied I think most disiplines are dominated by guys!

    Although I have to admit most of the guys I know that ride and love horses are older men not young teenagers.
    It is seen by some poeple (not horsey people) as girly but I love talking horses with other teenagers! Girl or guy! It makes no difference to me!

    It's great to meet and really like a guy that loves horses as much as I do! There should be more of you! 8)


    Also if you don't mind me asking, where do you live? What country?

    Where I live, people (Teenagers) call me gay just because I like horses, nevermind having one or rideing. And many other things they call me... But great to know that I am not the only guy here,LOL

    I am a Strait man and I love to ride. It is fun,challenging. I love to be out side not waching TV. I also realy enjoy having to take care of my livestock, makes my life have meening. To me getting involved with horses was like opening up a new part of my brain, a hole new folder of knowledge that I have. Knowledge that most of my peirs do not.

    Are you forgetting history. Riding horses has been prodomitly a male thing since the dawn of time. Since the invetion of the auto the average man has lost touch with that. (Sad) Don't let the fear of what other people think of you stand in the way of somthing you love. Not just with horses but with life. Think of all the things we would not have if people didn't do what they loved and did what their peirs thought where right.
