Horseback riding is a sport with many different disciplines, all with their own challenges. The certain discipline I am focusing on today is show jumping, in which a rider competes over fences and is judged either on time, rider, or horse. Many of the facts stated in this essay will refer to all of the disciplines of horseback riding. The most popular opinion of people who do not believe horseback riding is a sport is that the horse does all of the work, and all the rider does is “sit there”. I hope by the conclusion of this essay you realize the hard work, challenges, and responsibility put into the horseman’s sport.
This would keep conditions humane. It is impossible to control who buys a horse at an auction. This makes it very difficult to keep “kill buyers” from purchasing horses. Kill buyers are people who buy the horses from auctions and drive them to the slaughter houses to make a profit. This is the inevitable fact people face when sending their horses to auction.
One of the most accounted legends was that of a Hessian trooper who was decapitated during the Revolutionary war. People from the town believed that during nights, headless Hessian trooper rides on horseback in search of his head that he lost in battle.

Those who against animal experiments insist that those painful experimentation on animals should be halted. The pain is not moral whether it is experienced by a child, an adult, or an animal. If it is wrong to impose pain on a human being, it is also wrong on an animal. But many people argue that halting animal experiments would end the progress of science and actually human are taking gain from those experiments.

In every horse when they are lined up with an opponent they get the adrenaline to want to beat them just like if you’re running a race or just hit a homerun in the World Series.

Risks involved The risk factors that comes along with keeping such animals are so high compared to the little advantages that people may claim to be getting from them. These animals are wild and keeping them might lead to some accidents which the owner would have to bear with. Because the owner cannot basically meet their needs, these animals may attack unexpectedly and cause great harm. They can also make the owner or anyone who access the premises contract some diseases such as TB, Herpes and even Rabies since taking care of them cannot be compared to taking care of the normal pets such as the dogs. The behaviors of the exotic animals cannot be predicted, one may not order and command their steps each minute and therefore can kill or maim within few seconds.
