“Husband Horses” and the Feminization of the Horse Industry

Oakley Originals

​John L. Moore - published on 05/15/14

So here I am at age 61, busted-up good, but with a year of having to be horseback.

The challenge isn’t simply what type of horse I’m going to ride but what form of man I am willing to be.

Will I be more cautious, humble, and cognizant of my limitations?

Yup.

But am I willing to be thought of as a rider of “husband horses?”

Nope.

My mother would roll over in her grave.

John L. Moore, a third-generation Montana rancher recently completed his sixth novel. Looking for Lynne, which addresses issues in this story as well as sage grouse, can be purchased on Amazon.
