    Wow! I grew up in the city for the most part other than my summers up north, I never was made fun of for riding or knowing about horses. I didn't even know up till this point that anyone considered equine as a "girly subject". I've been a rider now for a solid 15 years and a wagoner for 5. Did everyone here forget about rodeo? In my little world men are just as involved in equine as women.

    I think teens today will pick on peers for however they stand out, just for the sake of discouraging an others free will to be an individual.

    Good on you for still pursuing your passion even though you feel you have to hide it though. Not that you should have to...

    You know, my farrier is a man, and has many of his own horses. My husband is not into horses (rode once or twice but generally not keen) neither are many of the guys here, but I know that they are all jealous of my farrier, because they know that horse girls like to see horse guys. There is definitely something about a man that can handle a horse and is not to shallow as to think less of him being emotionally attached to an animal....
    And to be honest I look forward to having the horses feet done.....

    Cowboys!

    I think more guys should ride!! The guys at my school don't know anything about horses and if they did ride they didn't like it. Most of them live in town and never have a chance to ride. However, I can tell you that the few who did ride were the "popular" kids. At the fair more guys showed horses than the girls, honestly. If more guys rode horses the world would be a better place!! Cowboys are cool!

    Hi guys,

    I've heard that too, which is strange, Alexander, Sa La Hudein, Daryus, Cyrus, Genghis Khan, Napoleon etc...........what did these guys ride again?

    For me its a cultural thing, a guy that can ride is seen as a noble, and I'm pretty proud I'm keeping that tradition alive, regardless of the horse's past uses, we call them "Jaan-Bhai" which means "Lifelong Brother".

    There is nothing "girly" about horseback riding. Unless you are riding sidesaddle....

    What, pray tell, would have become of the cowboys??

    When it comes to training in the Saddlebred world, the males outnumber the females tremendously. And that really doesn't say anything about quality, either. Instructors are stereotypically females though and many of the riders are female.

    Both of my young nephews like to play with my old girly horse toys. I have no problem with it and encourage it.

    Funny, I always imagine cute guys in saddle suits. Makes them so much cuter.

    I'm a 43 year old straight man, and just getting into horses. I dare any little, snot nosed, teenager, to get on my 1600 lb Shire cross, and hang on. Just bring it.
