Horse World Problems

The Pure Horse Sense blog has moved to a new home!

Don't worry, you can still read this post anyway, just click here.


  1. I actually had a guy at a gas station in Albuquerque think I was a prostitute when he saw me in my riding clothes. He actually asked me how much it would cost him to take me to his place. Another time a lady proudly proclaimed "You must work with horses, you smell like them!" Then there was the time my fiancé went to Target in our barn clothes after a particularly rough day of work. Another couple walked around the corner, saw how dirty we looked, and quickly walked away. I'm assuming they thought we were homeless. So much for riding being a prestigious sport, huh?

    In the end it doesn't really matter. These people will probably never understand, but they will also never be able to do what we do. I definitely understand where you're coming from though :)

    1. Thank you for your comment. It really is crazy how many different reactions you can get from people who don't know horses.

      Like you said, it doesn't really matter how they react (just smile and shake it off) because they might never understand what makes our sport so special.
