Why do girlies like horses and men like motorbikes? Action and Adventure

    Since I am a professional in the horse industry I may be able to give a little further insight into the magic that happens with a horse and any rider, man or women. Most riders happen to be women. Contrary to unpopular belief there is nothing sexual that happens to a women on a horse. It is not physically possible. Both women and men may have the fantasy of knights or whatever, but that is usually only when the person who is on the horse feels they have control of their own body and of the horses movement and speed. The difference between a motorbike and a horse is that the horse thinks and reacts to what ever the rider is doing, or feeling, and any outside influences. A motorbike will go where you point it while a horse may decide it does not want to go there.
    I have seen horses change women's lives of all ages. Horses teach them how to make choices and decisions that they would not take in their normal daily life. Some women are never sure how to set boundaries, say "no" or take control of what is happening to them. Some women have never felt the pride of knowing what they are capable of doing. This changes quickly when they enter into the world of the horse. When they are able to influence a horses behavior and movement peoples lives take on a new meaning. Horses also require the rider to have control of their physical and emotional reactions. Some people have never had to deal with personal issues such as fear, making mistakes, not being good enough, not being strong enough, not knowing enough, until they get on a horse and the horse teaches them how to learn more about who they are. And when the rider connects with the spirit and the soul of the horse...there is a magic that only those who have experienced it can really understand. Interspecies communication begins and the horse and rider began thinking and moving together, as one.

    Almost sounds like what people say happens on a motorbike. Becoming one...except with a machine instead of a living being

    For me, I love animals, and being on a horse with nature is an awesome feeling and being on a HOG I love the freedom and the closeness when your on the back of the bike wrapped around someone.

    Though I do like animals, I have never ridden a horse. Sure do love those bikes though!!

    Hello to everyone! I see many unfamiliar faces. Hi Auburn Hair, at least I 'know' you. :) I've just begun jumping into this forum thing. Feel as if I know all the bloggers..... Though I seem to find some in the forum, it seems to me that these are predominately treated as totally separate entities and people frequent one or another...Yes??? At any rate...nice to 'meet' all you new faces!!!

    Hi Everyone!

    Just gotta say- A Horse is fun, but tops out at about 35-40 MPH. A Harley will do over 100 MPH. Enjoy Both!

    Hay
    Horse riding is an emotional bond you work with the horse to gain what you want, you work together to get fit enough to cover the 60km ride and reach the goal you dont just sit on a horse and it goes it takes time and bonding but when you finish that race nothing tops the rush win or lose. A motorcycle is power at your finger tips control mostly no bonding needed but a rush never the less

    Hey! I LOVE both horses and Harleys and ride both! But, alpensnow... I have a BIG Question!
    When you wrote "whereas most blokes like things that go "Vroom!" Er, Ah, did you mean Blondes instead of blokes? Just curious!

    You don't have to wake up early every day and throw hay to Harleys.

    I think a lot of girls like horses because to them a horse is s*exy while to a man almost anything with a powerful motor is s*exy.

    Personally I hate horses. Had some bad experiences when I was young.

    well...men can control a motorbike

    to control a horse takes kindness and respect, and even then they don't always do what you want!

    Maybe in the United Kingdom Alpen but this girly likes the motorcycle & cars better. Although I do like animals if you give me the choice i like the thrill of the fast machine....been to much of a responsible person as of late for that fun stuff so I would go for the safety of a horse. Although my girly leathers aren't packed to far away in the closet - lol

    Hi Pooky4,

    FYI- The term "Iron Horse" is used and generalized to reference a Harley-Davidson. Also the term HOG is another term used for Harley Owners Group. I ride both animal and machine, lol. Both have their own special features. So I am off to ride into the sunset, but on which one, lol?

    And Sharp1, Ya I have seen a Harley get sweat, lol. A long ride, shorts, and a leather seat in the summer time, along the beach on Pacific Coast Highway in Souther California. Oooohhhh but what a fun time and feel. Besides you can put a Harley away wet after a long and hard ride, don't do that with a horse or ya know what can happen, LMAO. JK Sharp!

    A strong bike is the modern equivalent to the horse. When I ride, it reminds me of the days I spent on the reservation with my grandmother, a Cherokee Indian, who taught me to ride a horse. The motorcycle is now my horse.

    Think it's more of a romance thing. The knight in shining armor road of into the sunset on a horse not a hog.

    I wanted to add, when you are galloping across a beach, field or arena it is exiliarating to feel the power of the horse beneath you. It can be frightening to a novice rider.

    AlpenSnow write:
    At the risk of being 'shot down in flames' for generalising, a lot of girlies I know like horses whereas most blokes like things that go "Vroom!" (Cars or motorbikes).

    Why this should be I don't know, but I thought it would be an interesting thread to start.


    It's true, most girls like horses, but I also think it depends where you live. Calgary is noted for being a 'cowtown'! We host the Calgary Stampeded annually for over 50 years. As well as the renowned Spruce Meadows for international equestrian events. There are alot of males living around here into Western and English riding.

    I love riding horses, but I also love riding motorcycles. It's not always one or the other.
