We all can imagine the archetype of a “horse girl,” a girl who lives in the country and cares about her horses above all else. Have you ever wondered what it’s really like to be a so-called horse girl? In this article we’ll examine the stereotypes, and the reality of what it’s really like to be a horse girl.
What is a horse girl?
A horse girl is any person who lives in a house with a horse and cares about her horses, even if she’s never ridden. However, not all girls who love horses are called horse girls. Why does a person get involved with horses? Horses have been a part of many cultures for centuries, even many before the United States existed. Humans have depended on these animals for meat, transportation, housing, transportation, and livelihoods. American girls have been dying their hair pink for decades and wearing white stetsons. However, these days, the equestrian trend is pretty tame. For most people, the horse is still in the forefront of equestrian culture.
What are the stereotypes of horse girls?
Let’s first look at the stereotypes of horse girls. Horse girls in general, are assumed to have no life besides their horses, to have trouble interacting with the world around them, and that they’re either a little ditzy or mean, snobby and self-righteous (or a little bit of each). Some people would be afraid to be friends with or date this kind of girl because of these stereotypes.
I’ll be the first to say that the above stereotypes are based on stereotypes and not all horse girls are like this. They are, at their most extreme, exaggerated and inaccurate portrayals of what horse girls are really like, and can, at times, be hurtful to the very people who fit them. In all honesty, I’ve met quite a few horse girls, in the field and online, who fall in the stereotype categories but plenty more who don’t.
How to dress like a horse girl
Horse girls don’t have to worry about who’s walking in their shoes or on their back. They usually prefer western style shoes for everyday life (including dressage lessons). For everyday wear they wear boots that are long in the back. Sometimes they wear spurs (if they’re a western rider) or a western hat. Horse girls almost always wear leggings, since leggings are supposed to be worn around the middle of the leg to keep them riding.
And, of course, you have to look great, not just for attracting people for hookups, or making friends, but for yourself, so it’s only right that a lot of them wear fashionable riding outfits or riding clothes. Here are the basics to know: Leggings can be worn under the dressage jacket. Pant legs need to cover your boots, as you want to keep them clean! The leggings should be loose enough to be comfortable to move in.
How to make horse girl friends
Not all horse girls are the same, but it’s definitely not easy to find a group of them. With over 200 million equestrians in the United States, why wouldn’t we be able to find one in our local vicinity? When you think about it, it makes sense. What could be better than hanging out with your buddies on the weekend to ride?
After all, horse girl culture is all about having a great time and encouraging each other to have a good time. While the reality is that a lot of these horse girls are just as close to your average girl next door, the culture itself is nothing like the popular images you might be imagining. Horse women come in all shapes and sizes. A lot of them might even be mothers, too.
If you’re a woman looking to make friends with horse girls, you can start by joining some local groups on Facebook, and attending horse related events in your area. In general, I’ve found horse people are very friendly and open to conversation. If you’re a man or woman who wants to date or hook up with a horse girl, then you might want to try dating apps, and just see who’s in your area and proudly talks about or shares pictures with their horses. I’ve been using Thots app recently, and have met a surprisingly large number of cute horse girls!
First, you’ll hear about what it’s like to be a horse girl, from those who are actually living the lifestyle. I am a horse girl. I have a horse, I ride my horse, I have a barn, and I own a tack room. I own an amazing saddle, I have a bridle, I use a chambon, I have an abundance of brushes, I have a saddle pad, I know how to change a bridle, I know how to ride a horse with one hand, and a husband that knows how to do most of the maintenance. I am also what’s called a horse-obsessed person, and I LOVE it. The word “horse girl” is synonymous with riding, horses, and being immersed in the equestrian lifestyle.
