    Welcome to the forum! Fair play to you for losing the weight and getting out to do something that you want to do. Too often we all try and make other people happy before our selves.

    Excluding the wife of the barn owner, there are no other girls where I keep my horses but that is because it is a racing yard. I'm fairly certain that you will be welcomed with open arms and make plenty of new friends :) As previously mentioned, there are men in every sphere of equestrianism who do very very well and once you enjoy yourself that is all that matters

    Best of luck with it

    Go for it!! Where I am, male riders are few and far between. Riding is such a great sport... and if you have wanted to do it for so long, it will just be all the much greater once you do.

    It has been something I wanted to do since I was little. For many years I just thought that it wasn't going to happen (mostly because of my weight issues).

    Riding will help with any "weight" issues you have, as long as you commit and work hard(: As you advance in your riding levels, I am certain that you will recognize the need to be fit, and go the extra mile to get there. In addition to riding daily, I run a few times a week and just generally watch what I eat. So I'm just as fit and healthy as my wonderful equestrian partner, Lunar. And we perform our best!!

    The owner (male) and his father both ride, another one that trains barrel horses for the trails.. another that does dressage, another that just rides for fun and goes to clinics, I believe that's all.

    So.. 5? We have like, maybe 12 borders I think?

    This was before I left, so there could be more people, but they're awesome. Being a young girl, though, they first thought I was trouble and dramatic but I'm quite the opposite so we've all gotten along great

    Go for it.

    Go for it Mike. You'll love it.

    I had horses as a kid but gave up for university and recently got back into it. And yes most of the people I new riding were girls but I made loads of great friends. And I still know many of them today and I'm 40.

    I keep my horse in a yard, there's about 30 horses but I haven't seen one
    Male rider. But most of the women and girls there are super interested to know you, I admit I like female company and don't get bothered when someone makes a stupid remark. In fact I give as good as I get, and enjoy the banter. And really I think most riders will see you as a fellow rider before male or female.

    And you can definitely use being a guy to your advantage. Just act a bit dumb and you'll get women running all over the yard to try and help you out. They generally love to show you what you're doing wrong and how good they are at most things. But really, who's being smart

    You're a novice right? So you'll be learning with other novices, everyone will be nervous anyway. Just enjoy yourself.

    Lol! Don't worry, we women do it too. We know exactly how to look cute and clueless to get the guys to do stuff we want even if we know how.
