Hey Megan 🙂if you ride you become stronger and your passion develops. Doing sth, having hobby being passionate about sth in generall is attractive. It also makes you more confident and more self aware I think. Also as Lauren wrote, you meet people with the same passion sth common is a good point to start when you look for 'the other half' ☺
Horse riding is a sport where you meet a lot of different people, maybe even more than other sports.
The perks is that you meet people that share the same passion and activities so I think that can help :)
