What do you say when asked what sport you do?

What do you say when Someone asks what sport you do?
Like do you say "I ride horses"
Or "I am an Equestrian"
Or just "I am a Horseback Rider"?

As I have no sporty ambitions, I state that I rather spend time with my horse and others, which also may include horseback riding, rather than doing any equestrian-themed sport.

Non-horsey friend "What sport do you participate in?"
Me, "Oh, I ride horses, and mess around with reining."

A few tipical responses to this would be:

"You like to mess with the reins?"
"Isn't that like the things that go in their mouths?"
"WTH is that?"

Once I answerd with just, 'I rein', which a clever fellow replied without missing a beat 'over which domain?'

You are still a youngster! I tell people that I ride horses - simple as that.

Me too, I just say that I ride horses. If they ask more questions then I get more detailed, but that first answer is usually enough.

If you answer HAUGHTY enough, and say, "YOU know", most people will just nod, like when Elaine (in "Airplane") takes the order in jive and pretends to understand it.

As with what some others have said, I simply say I trail ride, or I drive horses. I have had people raise their eyebrow and one asked where I drive my horses to. Depending on what I am feeling, I explain about what we do or I say I drive them wherever they wish to go...
