That sounds like a spin off of a the saying we had back in the 70's (but it wasn't on a T-shirt). Of course most riders where men back then.
"God created horses to make up for women"
(also heard it as "God gave Adam the horse to make up for Eve"). But since I guess the increase in female riders would account for the rewording
. One thing that hasn't changed though is girl friends (and wives/ex wives) complaining about the time we spend with our horses
In my case the solution was easy. My horse was easier to get along with, so I got rid of the wife
(and bought an extra horse)
Don't get me wrong. It's wonderful to have a good woman, but it's so much easier to find a good horse
. And the horse never complained that I wasn't riding Dressage or didn't like where we were riding
