Equestrian Singles is a site designed for horse lovers who want to meet other people with the same passion and make friends or even relate romantically. There are many users on the site and many stories from people who found love there, so the site is completely legit.
In 2001 two horse owners realized no network for horse lovers was available yet, and then they created EquestrianSingles.com. Later the site was acquired by FarmersOnly.com. Jerry Miller, founder of Farmers Only, noticed that one flaw about most dating sites is that there are too many people in them, and it is hard to find people who have the same passions as you. A site like Equestrian Singles shines bright in this aspect, as everyone in the site loves one thing: horses. Therefore, users save time, and when they meet someone, they already have something to talk about. The site has already been featured on the Oprah Winfrey show.
Although designed for a very specific public, there are lots of people in this network. Finding people to relate with will depend on where you live, as some places are more likely to have horse lovers than others. If you live in Texas, per example, you will be fine. Nonetheless, the site has around 8 million users, and you can try your luck to find someone near you. Sometimes even if the person is not near, you can chat and plan a trip to visit them. That’s the magic of the internet and dating sites.
The Internet is free for everyone of every religion, sexuality, race, or political preference, right? Equestrian Singles seem to think that way too, as they have a very clear disclaimer about that on their FAQ. They explicitly welcome anyone interested in meeting new people who are also horse lovers. Even when you register, you can select “man looking for a woman” or “man looking for a man”, as a clear example of their mindset. Perhaps in the future, they can expand to include bisexual, trans, and non binary people as well.
One thing people worry about since the beginning of the internet is about how easy a website is for the users to navigate. We all have visited those clunky sites where we cannot know how to register, how to add photos, or even how to delete our accounts once we decide the site is too awful to remain in there. That might sound like the 00s, but sites like that still are out there nowadays as not everyone gets the fact that it is better to hire a good web designer than to design it yourself within a day.
Okay, enough with the small talk, right? How good is the design of Equestrian Singles? You might be asking yourself whether it is easy to use or if you need to read a long manual first (like old videogames!). The short answer is: the site is pretty well designed, and everyone will feel at home navigating through it.
Once you register into the site, they send you a verification e-mail. After verification of your e-mail, you need to upload a photo that will first be approved before other users can see you. Then you can start browsing the place in search of people who might interest you and correspond to your interest.
Once you create your profile and start searching for women or men, you have the option to flirt with them. You might be thinking, “yeah, okay, that is one of the reasons I am here for.” But what we mean by flirting is that there is a specific button for flirting. It goes as follows:
There is also an event section that is helpful for horse enthusiasts. The feature comes in handy for members to gather and get to know each other. In a site like this, it can serve the purpose of letting people know about friendly races, competitions, and other horse related affairs.
This site works by gathering horse enthusiasts who wish to find someone to form a friendship or relate romantically. People can register easily and then browse to find someone who they find attractive.
Free membership has limited features and to access to all the site offers you need to pay. That is how the site can continue up online and keep getting better for their users.
Signing up in Equestrian Singles is very easy indeed. Once you enter their website, you will see a “Create Account” button. When you access it you will go to a page where you will be requested to fill the following:
You also need to click a button that reads as “I certify that I am over 18 and have read and accepted the Terms of Service. By creating an account, you will receive updates and notifications.”
After you sign up, you will have to upload a photo of yourself, and within minutes you will have your photo approved. Your picture will only be rejected if it is offensive or if it is not of yourself. Don’t try to upload a photo of Brad Pitt, per example.
We already said that the site is pretty legit due to the number of members and how long it has been online. Successful couple stories also serve as proof that the site is real, and people on it are real too. Nonetheless, there are people everywhere wanting to cheat and deceive.
When you get interested in a new profile, you should always check if the person has their whole profile complete. Does the person say where he/she lives? Does he/she have more than one picture uploaded? Also, do the pictures seem legit? We already warned against uploading photos of other people, and this is a good way of seeing if someone on the site is legit or not.
Watch out for pictures that are too photoshopped. Sometimes scammers might get into these sites and create profiles with photos of people who look too gorgeous to be true. It is not that gorgeous people are not on the site, it is just that beauty has a limit, and it is almost always easy to see where the line is drawn and when a photo is just photoshopped to deceive.
Now you might be thinking, “is this everything I can do to be safe from fake profiles?”. Fortunately for you, there are more things you can be aware of to prevent from falling into deceiving.
One tip we give is that when you meet a new person on any dating site, you always start to chat without great expectations and without giving out private details about yourself. Test the water first, and see if the person let out anything that compromises his/her legitimacy.
If you have a strong trust in any member you met online and finally want to meet him/her and person, let someone else (a friend or family member) know about it. Tell where you are going and what time you are expected to return home.
It is kind of a shame that we need to talk about such things, but everyone wants to feel safe on sites such as this, right? We hope all of that helps you feel safe and have success with dating.
In the current days, almost everyone is always carrying a smartphone in the pocket, and thus companies that want their customers to feel satisfied need to invest in mobile apps. Well, Equestrian Singles know that and have their mobile app.
Their mobile app is very light; it will only occupy 2,4mb of storage space on your phone. It is also easy enough to use and has the main functionalities of the site. By using it, you can chat with other horse enthusiasts from anywhere and check if they sent you any messages at instant speed.
We know everyone loves to have many choices, whatever the product of interest might be. That is no different when it comes to dating apps/sites. Fortunately, there are plenty of dating sites and apps for horse lovers.
If you want to check your options before trying Equestrian Singles, or even if you already tried it and want to expand your chances by registering in other sites and apps, there are some choices available. Some of those options include Equestrian Cupid, Equestrian Dating Site, Love Horse, Equestrian Passions.
There are two main options of membership for Equestrian Singles: you can be a standard member with a free membership, or you can have a premium membership if you are willing to pay and access all features the site offers. The price varies with how many months you want your premium membership:
Once you choose your premium membership, you will have two different options for paying. You can either pay through credit card (or debit) or money orders.
If you want to pay with a card, it can be credit, debit, prepaid, or gift as long as it is issued by Visa, Mastercard, or Discover.

Every dating site has its risks as we already pointed out, but to talk generally, it seems that Equestrian Singles is pretty safe. They put up the premium barrier just to prevent fake profiles from talking to people that actually want to meet other horse enthusiasts.
It seems to us that Equestrian Singles is an excellent dating site for people who love horses and want to meet other people with the same interest. It is safe because of its paywall, and for those who are actually willing to meet new people, the premium membership doesn’t cost that much.
