Yeah there's some huge national ones called Miss Pole dance. The Barcelona one is amazing. I;ve never been but I've watched the winners videos.

I do the smaller competitions that some of the local clubs hold. They send out their event girls to all the strip clubs in the area and find they think have the most talent and personality. Then a venue is picked and stages and poles are set up. It's pretty fun and if keeps me in shape other than horseback riding. I've never won because I don't know nearly as much as some of these girls but I try to attend as much as I can.
I've only been to one of the big ones in Toronto Canada a year or so ago and went to their two day prep camp. That was awesome.
The stripper thing just keeps me up on my pole skills when there aren't competitions going on and it keeps me used to somewhat of an audience.

I was thinking of doing vaulting because of my balance. One of the clubs managers suggested rigging up a pole system and attaching it to a cart pulled my Caleigh...I have no idea how that would work but it might be interesting.

*sorry to be off topic*

I get stereotyped all the time in and out of horses, but I try not to let it bother me.
I normally widen my eyes and cock my head when a stereotype is placed on me. And then give a short "ha ok....?" I really don't know what else to react with.

^^ HA ha nice :)

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Mustangs - I've always dreamed of owning a mustang or a Waler, but for one I'm not talented enough to train a mustang.

I've encountered stereotypes but not personally with horses. Mostly to do with being a foreigner married to a US soldier. But they're more amusing than anything else.

Well I live in new york, so OBVIOUSLY I live in the big city. So many people ask what it's like, they are shocked when they here I've never been to NY, NY. It's a 6 hour drive!

I look like a nerd, so obviously I'm a genious (I wish)

well.. i have loads of steriotypes but one that really annoys me is the fact that yea.. ya know, my horse aint the smartest kid in class and neither am i.. but my farrier rubs it in as much as he can. My horse does NOT like the whole "nails in the hoof" process, but who would?? the sound of it makes my cringe and it does to her too. "lovely" farrier pointed out that if she spooks at the clang of a hammer on horse shoe while shaping it, there is no way she can jump the "scary" jumps in paddock.. oh yup.. we proved him wrong one day hahaha and i'll do it again with a smile on my face. we weren't expecting him out so bubbles and i were out in paddock doing jumping round of 2'9"/90cm and jumped a "scary" filler she hadnt seen before... well farrier turned up so i pointed her at the scariest one there and she FLEW!!! needless to say the farrier still holds grudge against us because im 14, medium height, quite slim and not strong looking.. bubbles is a 24yr old thoroughbred mare, 15.2hh dark bay and quite flighty when men are around... so apparently we are "a match made in hell.. not gonna work.. never going to acheive anything together" oh yea sure sure.. so just to annoy the farrier further im going to a showjumping event in november.. the venue just happens to be right beside his house..
i think he has a grudge against me because i ride quite well considering i've never had a lesson and only been riding since june last year

i wanna go up to him after we fly round clear and go "so how do ya like me now" turn and walk off. *but im only arrogant to people who annoy me, which doesnt happen unless they are steriotyping me or my horse.

Match made in hell? i dont think so:




you be the judge :)

A lot of people think I am snobby because I don't talk a lot at the barn. I'm not snobby I am just quiet/shy. Also, I own a young Warmblood gelding. Therefore, I MUST only want to do as many shows on him as possible without caring about riding too hard at his young age. Ironically, I SAVED him from this future. I got him from a competitive show barn that trained him with rollkur. My goal with him is to relax and strengthen is muscles so he will be a great dressage horse later in life, not compete with him and not care if he goes lame by age 13. I guess this is a 'positive' stereotype but a lot of people think I am a much better rider than I am because my WB has a flashy look to him, so people compliment my riding even if his frame is crap xD people also assume that I can't stand riding anything except a fancy horse. Definitely not true. I learned the basics of dressage on an 18 yr old lesson QH that used to do cow penning.
