all the horse men that I know seem to have some pretty epic drinking problems. Especially farriers. I'm in love with my vet, but he's happily married to the most stunning rider and trainer in our area.
My boyfriend rode my horse for the very first time last week, and gave it his best. But I think horses still just aren't his thing! No horsey men in my life... as of yet anyway!

I've never met anyone in the horse world who did not have opinions coming out of the wazoo. For that reason alone, the last thing I would want is a horsey guy, unless he was a GP level rider, and so earned his opinions.

Nope thanks. I'll take a none horsey guy who supports my interests every day of the week.

Yoohoo! Over here!

But I have to admit, I may or may not be a horsey guy, depending on what you consider horsey enough. While I have a horse, like the critter a lot (and like most horses & dogs that I get to know), and am slowly learning to ride her, horses aren't my life by any means. I do software for a living, spend a lot of time hiking, mountain biking, skiing in the winter, etc, so the horse is not an obsession.

On the other hand, it is possible to find good guys who will accept your love of horses without necessarily participating. For instance the friend who talked me into getting the horse. She and her husband are long-term friends. He'll help clean stalls, move hay bales, and all the other chores, hand out carrots and scratch ears, but in the maybe 15 years I've known them I think I've seen him ride exactly once.

Follow the cows. The boys are always roping, cutting, or riding them.
Every once in while you can convert a motorcycle guy over to horses, but don't count on it.

Horse Shows. There's plenty of good looking straight male barrel racers in my area. Most are just taken or the type you wouldn't want to date lol. I did meet my ex at a show, and even though he had a horse he wasn't a horsey guy. I rode that horse more than he did.

I found a guy who doesn't like horses - he is a bit scared of them lol. He has been on exactly one ride, and that was with me, which shows how much he loves me I actually like it this way - horses are my "me" time, something every couple needs in their relationship.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

This thread reminds me of the ones saying, "I want to buy a great barrel racing horse...and it MUST be a palomino!" The combo exists, but great barrel racing horses are rare enough to begin with...
