I'm 15, and gay (lesbian technically). I took my girlfriend along today to a horse show and we just did a normal little kiss before one of my classes. We didn't like make out just a 'Good luck' kinda thing. People were giving us funny looks. Of course we're both used to it so just ignored it and carried on as normal. The whole day we acted as a couple, and acted just as any straight couple would, you know we weren't doing PDA in the middle of the field, just holding hands etc. Managed to ignore normal funny looks, but things came to a head when I had gone clear twice in a showjumping round. Looking at the board I had the fastest time out of all the double clears and yet I had come fifth? Not thinking much of it I collected my ribbon and inquired about the placings, expecting for someone to point out something I'd missed or even tell me 'oh sorry there's been a misunderstanding.' Nope was told '**** don't deserve the winning place,' and that because a couple of people had complained we were being asked to leave. Well we left happily and I'll never be going back there again, but I just never saw the equine community as a place this sort of discrimination was so high!
