What are horse sports?

Horse sports are where a horse participates in a sport that is made for the animal. For example a horse sport can be horse racing where the horse has to run as fast as it can in a race of any distance. There is also Polo , Sulky racing [ horse pulling a tiny trap with rider ] , most Rodeo events , like Barrel Racing , calf Roping , Bronc riding etc , and some places have sled pulls with huge Draft horses, to see what team can pull the most weight. Then there are steeplechasing, foxhunting [which I personally detest ] and the most elegant is dressage , with the horse being put thru his/her paces by a very expert rider. There is also Show Jumping , where horse and rider also work together to navigate a course of gates , hurdles, fake walls and water jumps. Both horse and rider are judged in many of these activities, and the sport is a true partnership.
