No matter what discipline they practice, horse people can all agree on one thing: riding is physically demanding work. And as horse owners know, the riding part isn’t even the half of it—the accompanying chores are a workout all on their own.
Oh please I've seen male human do this too. Meh girls do it better anyways -- I've got more than one horse who gives it back ten fold! Especially the yearling filly who treats it as the greeting routine.
