Has anyone noticed that there are tons of professional, competitive male riders... but there is no male riders, that are... casual/pleasure riders? It sucks!
I have moved my horse from barn to barn, and I've met about 3 male riders in total... very depressing, haha. But when I visited a very expensive, competitive barn there was tons of male riders! :s
It's also funny how as soon as an attractive guy (or any guy, for that matter) enters a barn he gets mauled by girls haha... It seems like every girls dream is to have a boyfriend that loves horses... And it's understandable, because I would totally be one of those girls myself! Of course I'm too shy to actually say anything, but I'd definitely notice them haha. :p
My last two boyfriends that I brought to the barn with me absolutely hated it... It took soo much convincing just to bring them out there with me. They were little city wimps, and hated the smell, poop etc. Also one of them was extremely scared of the horses and wouldn't come near them... ITS JUST... uuuughhh! I'd just like to mention that they are EX boyfriends now.. ha..haha.. I'm not really into guys that are afraid to get a little dirty, and that spend more hours in front of the mirror than me.
I think my advice to a guy that is looking to find a girl/get a girlfriend would be: take horseback riding lessons.
