    Wink Horseback Riding Is Not A Sport.

    I'm writing an essay for my english class and I need to pretend like I think horseback riding is not a sport. Can you guys give me reasons why people think it's not?

    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure
    It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us...

    The horse does all the work
    You just sit there
    People dont understand we have to worry about equitation, distances etc
    they think you can just hop on a horse and start jumping (without riding before)
    You dont get out of breath when you ride
    It doesn't involve running
    Ah I've been snowballed! Twice!

    You where riding boot's not running shoes.
    Aussies n Apps It's terminology, perception and mood that can be the spark that lights the fuse to a thread gone wild.

    Grafenwoehr! Guten Tag, wie gehts es ihnen?
    They have no clue how hard it is to get back into riding after 2 months off man Im outta shape. They also wonder how we can "sit" on a horse and get nice muscles lol. I had someone say to me posting doesnt look like work. They got on and they were very sore the next day.
    19 more months before I am home for good... Cannot wait!!!
    WHAT?! I thought they were festered in petri dishes in the nether labs of the CIA. She's not an escaped experiment-gone-wrong???

    I love when "Non-Horsey" people ride a horse for the first time and the next day they are complaining because they're sore ALL over.

    And I just laugh and tell them "I don't feel a thing."
