Among the photos sent in to Britain's Horse & Country TV in response to a Valentine's Day survey.

Seventy-two per cent of British women would rather go ride their horse than spend Vaentine’s Day with their partner, according to a survey by Horse & Country TV that found even more, 75 per cent, admit they give their horses more attention than ther partners.

And 44 per cent will follow through on their preference, saying they would be spending Valentine’s Day with their horse rather than their partner.

Although the survey was conducted only in Britain, anecdotal evidence in other horse sport nations indicates similar sentiments.

Other findings of the United Kingdom survey of 1,000 people:

Jeremy Irvine’s performance in War Horse topped the list of perfect horse-riding celebrity Valentines with 28 per cent of the vote, beating out Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain at 25 per cent and Russell Crowe in Les Misérables with 18 per cent.

One in three respondents reported they would get their horse a Valentine’s gift.

When asked what would be their perfect Valentine’s gift, many said they preferred a comfortable pair of riding britches–not one respondent asked for sexy underwear, a box of chocolates or a bunch of roses.
