Definitely, I spend 90% of my week at the yard, so dating someone not there would be difficult. Although, of course there are exceptions, however it also gives you something to bond over and share experiences and advice...as well as romantic hacks out together. 😂👍🏻
I think It's difficult to date someone in the horse industry, especially if you're competing in the same discipline, it can become overwhelming. Also, when you're competing internationally it can require a lot of travelling and I think it's hard if you're both constantly going to different shows and training in different places.
