In my opinion, Horse riding should be considered, At most, An art. As the horse is doing all the work, It only requires skill, Which can and should still be appreciated, To control the horse, Which can even be considered animal abuse as it is sometimes achieved by causing physical pain to the animal. All physical effort that the rider must put in is only to control the horse. As for intelligence, It is required but only to, Once again, Control the animal and is therefore once again a skill more than a sport. It can therefore not really be considered a sport
