Read full description of the books:
I don’t know if I completely buy into this idea that women have more unique or more powerful relationships with horses than men do simply based on gender alone. I do think that girls are socialized in such a way that horses are one of several explicitly approved hobbies in which we can invest our time and passion without much push back. Boys, on the other hand, are encouraged (forced?) to partake in “manlier” endeavors— preferably something that involves a lot of hitting, kicking, and uninhibited aggression.
That said, just because we have developed these strange societal biases doesn’t necessarily mean that women are more “naturally” drawn to horses or innately more proficient in developing powerful human-equus relationships. It just means that, like girls who love football or boxing, boys with equestrian skills and desire will have a more difficult adjustment in light of our institutionalized notions of gender-appropriate activity.
I know many men who are wonderful with horses. In my view, men have just as much inherent potential and capacity to be the sensitive, talented equestrian. But unless they make it very clear that they’re dominant, aggressive, and “masculine,” male equestrians will likely have to contend with the strange and twisted consequences of our society’s gender police.
Don’t get me wrong, this book includes some very powerful stories and sentiments. I honor and identify with all the women who have been so powerfully influenced by horses throughout their lives. I simply take issue with the way we think about horses and gender as it’s no service to anyone when we force ourselves into one-size-fits-all boxes.
