IT'S A SPORT! It one of the oldest sport in the world. And the only reason you guys say it's not a sport is because you saw the OLYMPIC GAMES. I'm a rider myself, and I compete, so i trains 1,2,3,4 or 5 times, an hour to 2 hours a day, a week, just for a little SCHOOLING SHOW, Image a off property show.
Riding is a sport, because, we do EXACLY the same thing as you, other athletes, but you just don't see it! We risk our lives for a sport, and it's not just a sport, it's WAY more. I have to agree with Horseloverdude.
