"Equestrian" named most difficult Olympic sport
Thought some people would appreciate this. :thumbsup:
Which Olympic sport is the hardest? Fourth-Place Medal ranks all 32 | Fourth-Place Medal - Yahoo! Sports
Thought I should add that this article is mostly in jest... just in case anyone finds something offensive.
Ahhh YESSS!!! I LOVE IT!
Yay!! Pfffft, and some people tell me that riding a horse is not a real sport. This will show them!
It's completely true, though. In every single other sport, it is either a single human or a group of humans that are competing based solely on their own physical ability and prowess.
In no other sport must you control each muscle of a 1200+ pound creature of instinct with a mind of it's own.
I almost got into a fight on FB over this. Someone very adament that water polo is more brutal and dangerous than horse riding.
I'm pretty sure they're both dangerous in their own ways lol.. people don't realize the risk and skill it takes to ride at upper levels (Olympics) but don't get me wrong it takes a lot to ride in general!
Considering the Modern Pentatheon has riding in it too I'm suprised they didn't make it sound harder but all that aside lol YAY!

Zeke, I'm fairly certain that the "riding" portion of the pentathlon refers to a bicycle :wink:.
As I was reading down the article I was getting frustrated not seeing it. But low and behold first place.
I hope everyone who said it wasn't a sport to my face reads this!
