Competitive Horse Riding is a Sport

Rottencat
coolkid1231

I am an Eventer, someone who rides in Events competitively. Events include three main stages: Dressage, Stadium Jumping, and Cross-Country Jumping. I agree that this is a sport, as well as other competitive forms of riding. I do not, however, believe that trail riding and riding for pleasure are sports. In both of these, nothing is demanded from either horse or rider other than to move forward and occasionally turn. But in competitive events, both Western and English, the horse and rider complet...

For example, the recent controversy that Target edited an image...

This debate will be centered on the moral issue concerning abortion, so do not bring Roe v. Wade or the law into this discussion. It's about the moral issue only. Pro and Con will also not be allowed to argue whether morality is objective or subjective. Because it's not relevant to the topic at hand....
