Re: [RC] [RC] NOT Married because of horses... - Carla Richardson

You may find your perfect match one day, and I'm sure you won't accept less!  A friend of mine, who got her first horse at age 40, took riding lessons, and ended up being able to ride that horse (a QH/TB cross) on mountain trails by herself, she just loved that horse so much.  She had been divorced for many years, and met a really nice man -- who was not into horses, at all.  She said he might be interested in marrying her (gee), but wanted her to "get rid of the horse."  Another friend of hers said, well if he's the perfect man, why don't you just sell your horse, and make him happy? 
My first thought was, well, if he wants her to "get rid" of her horse, then he's not the perfect man.  Very simple, very obvious, to me!  And luckily, to my friend, as well.

This year I will be turning 30 and now I can't hardly go to  a ride without being asked "Are you married yet?" to which I reply  "Nope, haven't even got a boyfriend yet."  Katrina

Same here! I didn't do endurance all my life, but have been into horses all my life. Am also turning 30 this year, had a few BFs, but they all failed...and that was BEFORE I started traveling all over the place to go wallow in the dirt and have fun at rides :P So I figure I will have to face being not married for the rest of my life, LOL...esp because I also have NO interest in kids and "raising a family"...chases a lot of guys away when you tell them that you already have kids and they have four legs... :)
