    Correction! I wasn't searching for men or a man. LoL! I have one of those things. I was just curious as to how many fellas interact on a forum with their interests in horses. I've come to find that not many actually do. This means I actually have to go outside in the TX heat to find the bf some riding buddies. Geeze. :(

    Women like to discuss the things they do.
    Men like to do things and observe them then do something else.
    The sexes are wired differently.
    There are plenty of men who ride.
    About posting in a western saddle. I do not either. I don't see any reason too. Plus we like to keep things in their place for safety purposes. Shalom

    Why do you think I ride ? I got stuck with a horse I was feeding , got online and saw the pictures of a nearby riding club, including their year end christmas party. 30 girls, one guy. A rocket scientist I'm not but even I could figure that one out.

    I post in a western saddle, but not by popping way out of the saddle. When I post, my goal is for my rump to get out of the saddle but my jeans to stay in contact. But I'm usually using an Aussie-style saddle, so I'm allowed to do whatever I want...

    I asked this same question at he barn and the answer I got was "they are either cowboy anti-feminist *******s or they are gay english riders" not my own opinion just what I heard. I am at a barn with 40 some horses and there are no men. I am sure the tables are turned in the midwest where there are actual working ranches and such.

    Ouch! That's a huge blanket stereotype if I ever saw one!

    Could be true though, I'm not there to form my own opinion *shrug*

    I just don't understand why it's considered a girl sport. It's so much fun to ride and spend time with horses. Even my dad loved it, and my brother. They're both allergic (had to take a LOT of benadryl within the course of the day)

    They're missing out..

    I don't think us gushing over the [better] relationship we have with our horses endears males to much to join in.

    Yeah not all of us are like that though The guys at my barn are very loving towards their horses, more so than you'd expect.

    But yeah maybe some are put off by that. Silly reason to miss out on a good sport though.

    Really now.... there is the relationship with the horse, the relationship with the man, and the relationship with the good girlfriends. If you expect to get ALL that good stuff from one man, well, in my opinion that is asking too much. I'm willing to sacrifice the relationship with a man temporarily due to obligations with work and horses (which take up ALL my time haha). And you see therefore what my priorities are :))
