  2. Sharing a win – “The best thing is being around when everything has gone well at an event, with the horse and rider on great form and in a happy mood.” Rob from Kent.
  3. Enjoying events – “Horsey people are much more likely to be a racing or point-to-point fan (something of a biggie for me) and probably not bothered about spending hours outside.” Neil from Buckinghamshire.
  4. Natural beauty – “Make-up and perfect hair doesn’t go with horses, which means you get to know the real person pretty quickly.” Maisie from Hampshire.

  9. Muddiness – Equestrians “will understand your muddiness and your slightly smelly car”. Felicity from Hampshire.
