The older showjumpers do tend to form their own boys club, even if it’s all in good fun. I’m sitting in the competitors tent on the weekend, when one ‘gentleman’ declares, “Women – they're alright to look at, but not much good for anything else”
The others see me sitting there, “what do you think of that, doc?”
“Oh it’s alright ... we’re trained to forgive the old senile ones their indiscretions”
He looks offended, and warns me, “I’ll remember that”
I just turn around. “No you won’t”
