I did a speech just like this last year. What I did is I talked about English Riding and the three main sports for that. (Show jumping, Cross Country, and Dressage.) What I did was state al of the hard things that you have to do in each sport. (ex. Showjumping - remembering the courses, jumping 5 feet in the air, steering ect.) Another thing that you could put for your Olympics paragraph is that it's a respected sport in the Olympics and both men and woman compete in it at the same level. I ended up winning first for doing my speech on horseback riding and a lot of people actually beleived horseback riding was a sport after I said this. Some of them even wanted to try it! =P ... another reason you could put (I don't know if this would be appropriate and it only applys to boys but) is that what guy wouldn't want to try horseback riding? There's beautiful girls wearing tight jeans and pants and some of them usually have a lot of money! =P That's something my coach told me when she was angry cause not a lot of boys were riding! =) lol Hope you have fun with this paper though!!!
