Horses breed Dommes?

I came across an interesting article in a local paper a couple of weeks ago and it has been on my mind since. Having worked with horses, and owning them as well, it struck a chord. Down below is a short summary of the article.

Girls with horses see themselves as pack leaders and become better bosses. They see themselves as resourceful, a new study shows.

The ability to interact with the horse separates horse back riding from other spare time interests. Women in stables are forced to show who is in charge. It affects their self-image and they begin to view themselves as resourceful and brave. The girls in the stables feel that they differ from traditional expectations on how a woman or young girl should be. They see themselves as leaders, the author states. It is the powerful animals, and what the writer refers to as the discourse in the stable, that develop the girls' ability to lead.

Events that occur with horses, for example that they tear themselves loose, force girls to intervene. It is a dangerous world where young women have to take charge against these big animals, the researcher further explains.

The girls in the study describe themselves as "unbothered" and a bit tougher than other girls.

I wonder if that means that the percentage of Dommes is larger among women with horses than those without? Maybe the free submissives should simply take jobs as stable boys, ready to serve. If nothing else, they will find themselves surrounded by strong and confident women.

Care to muck out my stable, anyone?

Christian - You are first in line to start shovelling manure, so roll up your sleeves!

Axe - Having ridden real stallions has put me off pony play for good. A nice puppy on the other hand.... *smiles*
