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
