Lol, funny thing my school counselor was telling me (She went to school at a riding academy for 4 years)
We tend to take our men the same way we take our horses.
And something my Art teacher told me (breeder of Peruvian Pasos)
Men thend to get more into it with more drive, while women tend to do it much more for enjoyment whether or not they realize it.
So men tend to go farther I guess? I could see how that would work, they're a little more competitive than we are when they want to be.
