Oh, the other one I get...ok, so I'm Korean and get very odd looks when I tell people I ride horses and I ride western. I get the "I've never seen an Asian cowgirl" or "I've never seen an Asian redneck" before. Ugh! It might not be something you see everyday, but I ride to live and I live to ride and I don't care if anyone thinks it's odd!

Oh yes, I have heard this one before, but the opposite remark "buy a horse from a man, it will be better behaved." grrrrrr

I've been called a stunt rider for falling off, a jockey for staying on, and a rich drama queen for riding at all. Since I do ride I must listen to country music and have dropped out of high school. That or I go to private school and listen to classical country. Riding in my jeans makes me trashy, riding in my breeches makes me a snob.

And since I ride I must know every last detail about anything and everything concerning every single type of riding and/or horse imaginable. Of course.

Well, I had a stereotype of my own about "english horsey" people, and I have had horses all my life. I thought they were probably snobby (I think its the attire). Because my daughter wanted to ride English, I took her to a hunter jumper outfit, and "poof", my stereotype went bye-bye. They seemed far less snobby (for lack of a better word) than a lot of "western" riders can be. HA! I had to remind myself not to stereotype.

Once in art I drew a horse then my art teacher assumed I was obsessed with horses.
I love riding and horses but no i'm not going to be a famous horse rider.
I'm more set on music, acting etc.
People shouldn't assume stuff.

I also hate that people don't think riding is a sport or it's easy. It's the **** more dangerous sport in the world! In one second you can be dead. It takes a lot of mental and physical skill, strength and training! You're dealing with a beast at least 3 times your weight.

I've had my share of strange looks and comments as horsewomen with geldings as perverted, when I've been seen cleaning my geldings sheath.
