    Okay so I work all of the time and spend the rest of my time with my horse. Haven't been single for awhile but now unfortunately am. Where do you find single men that can put up with a wiman that is already married to her horse? If age helps looking between 25-35? I am afraid of doing the online thing!

    I'd like to know too!!!!

    I'd always heard vet / farrier, but the vet at my barn is female, and the farrier is older than my father...

    Maybe I'll take a western discipline instead...mmmm.... cowboys....

    No this really is horsey related. I have tried dating those that are unhorsey and they get jealous of the barn! Really!

    Oh do tell where to find a good horsey man... Age unimportant, looks and wallet important http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    The last "prospect" was too agressive with the animals and I decided he was out...

    I'm 23 and it's been five and a half years since I've dated anyone! Argh... http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/sigh.gif

    found my hubby at a therapeutic riding center.. he was the president of the organization (we are both relatively young 23 and 25) and I came in as a new instructor and then was asked to join the board of directors. We both pissed each other off almost immediately... I could barely stand him(cowboy)..... then my truck broke down and he was the only person I could call. We've been together since then. lol

    Good luck... good single horsemen are hard to find!
    If i'm posting on Coth, it's either raining so I can't ride or it's night time and I can't sleep.

    Yes, start hanging around with people from the track - exercise riders, jockeys, trainers, assistant trainers, grooms, breeders, many are men. Some are poor, some are not.

    Well if you are looking for a "horsey man" I'm afraid those are few an far between. If you're looking for someone who will not get jealous of all your barn time and the love of your horse (s) I'd suggest a musician. They usually are the sensitive sort, so they are pretty easy to get a long with, AND they are usually sooo in love with their music that while they are "playing" or "composing" you can sneak out to the barn without being noticed! lol Atleast that what I do to my husband all the time. He's the greatest, and I've found that a lot of his friends, who are also musicians, are very similar and they all seem to really like animals too. Maybe just my bunch, but it's a pretty big bunch! Good luck ladies, my advice, when you find a good one, don't let him go! Even if he has a few annoying quirks, like leaving his socks in a pile by the lay-z-boy! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif lol

    Take a class. Local enrichment or community college can offer a large variety of interesting subjects. You might want to focus on guy oriented topics that would also be useful or interesting for YOU to learn.
    I had a great time with a welding class, has been a very useful skill, knowledge over the years. Also was 20 to 1, male to female!! Wide age spread in the student bodies attending my class.
    Women should know a bit about cars, motors, perhaps beginning mechanic class. There are not always other mechaical people around to help you. Maybe YOU could rescue a cute guy one day!! My friend did that, dated him for awhile. Computer skills have guys in the classes, never hurts to improve your skills. The classes available are numerous.

    Maybe a craft class, pioneer skills are popular. Reenacters make their equipment, teach each other skills, trade craft work. The Medieval groups can be fun, lots of men and women, role playing. You would need to find some local groups, but they aren't hard to locate.

    The list of meeting men places is very long, just look around. The minus is that you need to give up a few horse hours. You always seem to have to give up something you like to gain something else you want!
    However you WILL have other new topics to discuss, bonus of new knowledge or skills learned, to make you a more well-rounded person. Double bonus would be a new guy friend somewhere in there.

    On the take-a-class theme -- you'll meet loads of guys, most of them aspiring firefighters, if you take an Emergency Medical Technician course. And since you'll spend hours practicing your EMS skills, you'll have lots of time to get to know each other (hands on!).

    People who study EMS tend to be outdoorsy, fit, individualist types who pursue their interests with a lot of passion -- divers, motorcyclists, climbers, etc.

    (The course is a good education too!)

    Stop playing on COTH where there are only 400 guys and 20,000 women and go outside. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Run, peterving, run!

    Oh, wait, he's a starving student. Throw him back 'til he (and his wallet) gets bigger... http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif
