a thread in support of horse girls (i consider myself an honorary horse girl).

starting with this advice column entry: https://slate.com/human-interest/2020/11/horse-people-obsession-interior-design-dear-prudence-relationships.html

obviously, the horse girl should dump this loser asap.

my sister was a division i ncaa equestrian in college and took 1st in equitation for the state of massachusetts in her senior year. sadly she only took 4th in regionals and did not make it to nationals

i think most of her competitors grew up owning horses, we were not quite that fancy though obviously my parents invested a lot in her hobby

much love for horse girls

My stepbrother's wife is some sort of champion barrel racer, and now her daughter is doing it. I've never seen her in action, I haven't been to the rodeo in years.

i am a horse girl in my heart but never lived that life

i had two friends in primary school who both owned horses & would canter instead of run during any school athletics or sports, and made tails out long grass that they tied to the rear belt loop in their jeans - they were a deep & lasting influence on me

my cousins had horses - my older cousin still goes alpine riding & full on Man From Snowy River coolness. when we visited i’d get to ride my younger cousin’s lovely little pony (while being led)

one time she was gone & my older cousin let me ride his huge bay mare
he plonked me on the saddle & was like “ok kick her to go, pull to turn, off you go” and i was like WAIT WTF NO LEAD? lmao i was terrified plus it was like sitting on a mountain, i was maybe 10

anyway i love horse girls with all my heart whether they are aspiring ie Tina Belcher or whether they are fully out there doing it Olympic Princess Anne Esquestriannes

(and shout out to horse boys who are cool
too)

haaaaaaaaaa LMAO this was my sister all through grade school

the late great, Thursday, 19 November 2020 03:43 (two months ago) link

my sister had so many damn breyer horses when she was in grade school, i think at some point my parents finally realized that the breyer horses were gonna end up costing more and be more useless than just getting her lessons (and then she turned out to be really good at it, lo and behold)

the late great, Thursday, 19 November 2020 03:46 (two months ago) link

I did not have a horse as a child (took riding lessons on other ppl's horses) and my poor golden retriever had to fill in. I would set up jumps in the yard and he would do his best to clear them. Also tried to fashion a bridle/bit, which did not go so well.

RIP Kirby. You were a good boy, but not a horse :(

My wife was a horse girl growing up on a farm when she was younger. Her horse was named Chango. She hadn't ridden in 30 years when, about 5 years ago, she rode in the hills of Los Angeles as part of a work trip. She said she was terrified but she also had a great time.

My wife's aunt and cousin are major horse girls. Large animal vets, specifically.

They also own a farm that is a retirement home for old racehorses and some of those fuckers are bity!

I am going to be riding a bitey former racehorse today! Not so much bitey as mouthy, he likes to lip things. It's really cute actually.

Large animal vets are totally badass.

Did I mention I have a tattoo of my horse's initials?

Even though I think they are beautiful creatures, Horse's scare the shit out of me. But I do respect your tat!

I got chased by two ponies recently, I think they just wanted to say hello but I shit it and ran!

To be fair, anyone who has spent appreciable time with horses has gotten hurt one way or another. But WORTH IT!, say the horse girls.

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Saturday, 5 December 2020 16:02 (one month ago) link

I've done both, and riding an elephant > riding a horse. That said, I've always been kind of fascinated by dressage. "I'm so incredibly rich, I can spend hundreds of hours teaching my horse to dance."

Was on a hike by myself and saw a horse. Then another. Then soon was surrounded by 10 or so. Wild I assume? Started getting nervous. "Wait horses don't attack humans ever do they?? Hid behind a juniper. One of the horses goes AROUND the tree and is a few feet from me, glaring at me. "Horses don't do coordinated attacks do they????". I'm legit worried at this point. So I whoop and holler and clap my hands. They look at one another and then run off. "Yeah y'all don't want none of this, that's what I thought!!"

Horses are my favorite animal prob.

re original article, I can't get past : "I’m not a decorations guy" "I don’t really have decorative “taste” and didn’t contribute any of my own decorations"

who fucking talks like this?

I think the horsewoman Brianna Noble who rode in the Oakland BLM protests is now doing Verizon ads, texting from horseback. At least I'm pretty sure it's her, small online banner ads.

I am anti texting from horseback but pro protest ponies.

I was supposed to have a jumping lesson today but my pony is lame. LAME!

So instead we threw him in the hot walker (aka equiciser) for the first time. He was not amused.

In other horse girl news, I had my first proper dressage lesson yesterday and thought of Ann Romney and that late night interview where Mitt downplayed the whole "dancing horses" thing.
