I used to date a guy who rode horses competively in dressage. He came outta the closet the next year. =/

I know only 3 guys besides him who like horses. One is my farrier, who's 21 and also rides bulls and is very hot. =P the other one is my horse trainer,and the last one is my sister's husband. Aint she a lucky girl? =P

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I'm the only guy at my lessons, it's all good, there's only one girl who is always into the drama thing, but that's about it and we try to ignore her. Most of the girls at my lesson are rather serious and don't cause drama. Hard to believe right? :P

My boyfriend has a horse and rides, he grew up barrel racing and roping tough. There's alot of male riders around me, but thats barrel racing. Western is where you find most male riders.

Both of my sons ride. Ok, they're much younger (still in elementary school) but they love it. My friend's teenage son rides as well.

Horses are like therapy ~ and almost as expensive

Gee, I am blessed. my hubby had never ever been around a horse till I took riding with a friend. He now loves to ride, nothing fancy, doesn't have a clue what he's doing but loves to brush the horses, go for long rides with me, cleans the stalls does all the hard work and LOVES all of it. Course, with only one horse its making things hard now. But we used to have 5 before we moved back to lower MI.

When you give a personal lesson in meanness to a critter or to a person, don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.

I always like cleaning out stalls at the lesson barn as well, It doesn't stink like dog poop, or any other kind of poop.

- Everyone also has the greatest horse in the world, and then goes on to tell you how many times they've been thrown off.

- Guys are 'saddle up and go' types...ladies take forever before they're ready to go. When I trailer to a barn to ride with the ladies, I make it a point to show up 30 minutes late, and after unloading and tacking up, my mares and I are still standing around waiting to go.

Sorry ladies, us guys are happy just wandering the roads and trails, practicing with the cows, having a fun, relaxing day, and putting our feet up, having a beer, and some nice conversation.
Exactly! Though I am female. The only time I even give a turd about whether or not My horse is sparkly clean is if I plan on taking semi decent pictures. When I get A chance to ride, its a quick brush down and hoof picking, then I'm outa there! Whether or not I even tack up depends on my mood :P
