Male riders

ok, so ive started this thread cuz im already getting an earful from my so called "friends" who think males who ride horses are dumb and such. i totally disagree with it cuz its something i just enjoy, althought i know not too many male riders. Plus they say ill look rediculous wearing all that horse riding equipment, the breeches, helmet, boots, etc. what is everyones opinion on males who ride?

My husband rides western. Besides - horses are usually where the best women are. ;)

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

I dated a guy who rode horses and it was tones of fun because we enjoyed the same thing. Men it tight jeans and a western hate looks pretty darn nice to me!!!!

Before I switched to Western (~25 years ago) I rode English. My wife loves to show the picture of me in my white britches, tall boots, and red shirt atop an all black 16.1 TWH exshow horse while on the trail and Dazzler in full showoff mode (of course that was not only many years ago, I was also 30 pounds lighter)!

Most of the riders I trail with are men and it can make for a competitive ride!

When I was growing up and in my teens (way before I met my wife), it was pretty much the same thing with me. Teens can be dumb. Many times it's because they can't ride and are afraid to be embarrassed by taking lessons. Let's face it, 90% or higher in most English barns, lessons are taken by girls and a guy doesn't like to be shown up.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I find that kind of funny, no ofense to girls, but men started the whole riding a horse thing. Well I ride, I know quite a few men who ride. I agree that men do look kinda funny in the helmets, riding boots, and breaches. But they look fine in cowboy boots and jeans.

I married a guy who had no interest in horses. Seven years later and he's finally coming around to it and I couldn't be happier. There is nothing that I enjoy more than watching my husband work with a horse.

There is no surer way to a girl's heart than a man with a horse. Even girls who aren't into horses - they still have a soft spot for them.

As far as your friends? Probably jealous.

It's the same with ballet - ballet used to be EXCLUSIVELY a men's sport...

Funny how things change, huh?.
