    Ok, so all the stories that i've heard are of people riding STEERS. what if I do end up buying a female bottle baby calf? Will I still be able to train her to ride? Or are steers better used for riding?

    Yes, cows can be ridden too, however I do not recommend riding too beefy of breeds or dairy breeds. They're just not built for it.
