The conversation drifted away from swimming and someone mentioned horseback riding and dancing (like at a club).
I have no desire to go horseback riding because I think horses are big, powerful and scary. However, if I was with someone who wanted to go horseback riding I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to trying. On the other hand, the idea of "fast" dancing like at a club or a wedding terrifies me. Just thinking about having to dance in a social setting makes my stomach knot up and my throat constrict a little. When we got married we had a daytime wedding. There were many reasons for this but I would be lying if I didn't say that I was drawn to a small, daytime wedding because it eliminated any chance of someone trying to make me dance.
When I think about it these two things are somewhat surprising. My #1 hobby is a sport where riding a bike (fast) is very important and I think riding a bike is more dangerous than horseback riding. I don't know what to say about dancing since I don't even want to think about it...

What is something that scares you that others might be surprised to learn?
