As a sport it's clearly defined as being different than subsistence fishing which has no rules beyond obeying the fishing laws of the where you are or commercial fishing and the laws governing it (subsistence and commercial fishing are not considered a sport).
Nope. As I said, you can make a competition of those things - you can, for instance, have a fishing derby - but the sports as the vast majority of people practice them are not competitive, and have no actual rules that apply to the sport, though there may be laws like for instance fishing seasons, limits on the number that can be caught, &c. Also many sport fishers practice "catch & release", so they're clearly not subsistence fishing.

As for the horse doing most of the work in riding, would anyone like to show that it's not true for most riders, most of the time? Sure, it can be exercise, just as you could get a workout playing golf by running from hole to hole. But most people still prefer to ride in motorized carts
