I trained horses for 20 years; there are plenty of gay men who ride , trust me!
A for instance; Chip and Reichen (sp?), the gay couple on the Amazing Race, were the only two Reality Show competitors I have ever seen who actually knew how to ride horses properly when they were required to do so. No bouncing up and down, pulling hard on the reins, holding onto the saddle,etc.
That's not counting David on Joe Millionaire 2, but in my opinion David rode like a rodeo cowboy, not a real horseman. (Rodeo cowboys only have to be able to remain balanced on the horse while they rope the cow, jump off to steer wrestle, etc., the horses are trained to do their thing without much guidance.)
Of course usually the "horse riding" date on these shows usually involves riding horses that can be ridden by anyone old enough to be able to able to sit up! Someone getting killed just isn't very romantic.
