Ride or own horses?

I feel like there are A LOT of city slickers on GAG. I don't own a horse but I do ride and help out 4 days a week at neighbors with horses. If you do how many years have you ridden?

  • I don't want to, but for some reason I've known way more girls who used to ride horses than it is statistically reasonable.

  • I've ridden horses before but I wouldn't say I ride horses. :) Yeah, I'd have to drive an hour to get to the nearest location where I could ride a horse. It's not like I can have on in my backyard anywhere around here.

    • After a while it actually becomes comfortable. Or in my opinion lol

    • And that's why I said it's uncomfortable. I would much prefer to walk or hike than sit bowlegged on a horse.

    • Okay! Everyone likes different things lol. I totally understand :)

  • Can anyone ever really own an animal?

  • I used to ride horses, I started when I was 8 years old up in Washington state. I rode on a off until I turned 18. I am kind of a city slicker, though.

  • Went to horse camp one summer and they gave me the biggest and tallest horse. His name was blue.

    He was shit at listening. But he was my horse, temporarily, and I was super sad when I found out he passed away.

  • The poll options don't really work for me. I picked a long time ago. But if I had the money I'd totally own horses. I love them.
