Horse riding is a sport
girls do you agree
Very nice video!
The battle scars say it all.
Oh yes, it's absolutely a sport!
I understand that the spills and accidents and falls make the most dramatic "points" across to non-riders but so much more than the "dangers" of riding is the skill, the balance, the communication, the muscles and the practice required to be good.
Aching thighs and calves, muscle training and endless hours of practice to become a better rider and to become a better team with your horse. It's those things that really quantify it as a "sport" to me. It's not just sitting atop a horse, it's work and it's hard and it takes a lot of time to train your body and mind - just like all sports it requires athleticism!
I so agree big time!
Whenever anyone tells me that riding isn't a sport I invite them to help me at the barn for a day. That sure changes their minds.
I agree ..If it were easy everybody would do it. I find it amusing when the couch jockeys declare horse riding not to be a sport. I just smile at them and go out and ride.
You can engage in sports with horses, but horse riding is primarily a relationship, a partnership, which shows off the magnificence of the horse.
