#YesImAHorseGirl

WE ARE PROUD HORSE GIRLS

We know horse girls are thick-skinned, confident, brave, and so much more. Yet, the perception of horse girls has been negative for too long. We did several surveys, asking more than 20,000 people all over the world how they perceive horse girls, and about horse girls' own experiences. The results are clear: there’s still an unfair belief of what a horse girl is. 6 out of 10 are bullied for their interests in horses. More than 7 out of 10 think the term 'horse girl' is used in a mocking way. The most common words used to define a horse girl are 'obsessed', 'weird' and 'crazy.

GET BULLIED FOR THEIR HORSE INTEREST

THEY SAY WE'RE

WEIRD

THEY THINK WE'RE CRAZY

THEY CALL US OBSESSED

THINK 'HORSE GIRL' IS PERCEIVED NEGATIVE

BECAUSE BEING A HORSE GIRL IS CRAZY AWESOME

Great self-esteem, new friends, and a never-ending passion — these are just a few of all the amazingly positive things you feel and get from being a horse girl, according to our community*. Plus, you need to be a little crazy to find the bravery to handle a horse. So, who cares if someone thinks horse girls are weird? Don't be afraid to show who you are. If people make fun of it, own it! Be proud and say #YesImAHorseGirl!

Jas – Ambassador

"Being around horses has taught me that the only important thing is the present moment. Whenever I go on trail rides, I forget about all things that stressed me during the day — cause in the end, everything that matters is what’s now. No one knows what’s going to happen tomorrow and what happened yesterday can’t be changed."

Sophia Ninette Lübbe – Influencer and rider

"My horses gave me a sense of responsibility I never had before — they made me grow from a child into something almost like a mother. They’re company makes me feel less alone but at the same time, free. Horses demand a level of respect that when given, they give back to you. It teaches me to always treat others the same way."

Chiara Moonstone – Ambassador

"Horses have played a huge impact in my life when it comes to being successful. From a young age, I grew up around horses and competed in shows. It taught me responsibility, confidence, and to be brave. The confidence to try something new and to push myself to be the best version of myself I can be. I also had to care for my own horse at a young age, which honestly I think drifted over into my career today of being a NICU nurse."

Anja Federwish – Student and Blogger

"Dealing with horses has taught me to take responsibility and not always put my own needs first. It's not always just up — there are setbacks, illnesses, and problems to overcome. If you manage to do this, you learn a lot for your own life and become stronger."

Ivy Cherrypie – Ambassador

"I feel that I’ve not only grown into a more caring, hardworking and open minded person but I’ve also become more confident to be myself, and learning that who I was, is unique and brave. For years I felt that I didn’t fit in and I just wasn’t like the others, but it wasn’t until I joined the equestrian world, and became a proud horse girl that I noticed that I can use my uniqueness in such an awesome way!"

Julia Steinbrecher – Horse Trainer

"Horse riding has taught me so many things from a young age that I have carried with me to this day. Things such as patience, confidence, trust and most importantly — love. I truly believe that horses are a mirror to the soul of us all."

Evangeline Kingborn – Ambassador

"My love of horses actually brought me my best friends, online and offline, whom I really appreciate and look up to! Real life, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, or Amino — I have always found the most precious people in the horse lover communities."

Alicia Shadowbaker – Ambassador

"I gained courage by being a horse girl, because I can't even remember how many times I have fallen off and then gotten back up on the horse back because I knew that was the right thing to do. Even though I was afraid after some of my falls, I never imagined stopping riding at horse because of that. It's something in you, a spark you can't get rid of."
