I'm a male horse rider (English hunter/jumper)
I was wondering, what's the first thing that comes to mind when I say that.
And ladies, if you've ever dated one, how were they?

Well, when I first saw "horse rider" I immediately thought of a western pleasure style of riding and got the image of a laid back, chill, fun to be around kind of guy.
Then I saw "English hunter/jumper" and that image changed. I got the image of a very competitive, slightly cold individual with a superiority complex. I know, if you compete, the kind of mental processes needed for that level, and I know the dedication needed as well. However, the typical attitude that goes with that particular sport is...Undesirable. But who knows, you could be the exception.
I run barrels, personally and find the guys who do that lots of fun. I've only jumped once or twice, and it was fun, but the attitudes of those who do that are always...unwelcoming. At least, that's been my experience.0
