I bet you didn’t know that there are equestrian dating sites. Yes, you heard that correctly. There are apps and sites that cater to horse lovers, horse singles and horse friends. These services become a one-stop shop for horse content: engage in online forums, follow the latest equestrian news and why not also find love, friendship and a riding partner (pun intended) whilst you’re at it.

Few examples below:

1.      Equestrian Cupid
2.      Horse & Country Lovers
3.      Equestrian Dating Site
4.      Horse Lovers Dating

If such sites and services exist, this must suggest that there are large, massive, abundant groups of passionate equestrians in the world that wish to create their own personalised dating experience. I’m no longer surprised this category exists in this digital archive – in fact, it all makes sense now. Finding a safe space online to express a passion for horseback riding, without the need to justify, can be powerful. I imagine members of these services to pursue country life, matching with fellow like-minded equestrian lovers to discover unchartered trails on the regular. This is a different kind of living. Goodbye busy, dirty London, hello rural Gloucestershire.
