The National Association of Home Builders has come out in support of a plan to make riding on a horse an adventure sport, in a way that is not as fun as it sounds.
In an article posted to its website Monday, the group stated, “The American Horse and Wagon Association believes the American Horse Show should make riding a horse a serious and exciting sporting event that everyone can enjoy.”
The article went on to say that “We have not only learned much about horse riding from the horse world but have also witnessed many exciting events and experiences that have shown us that riding a Horse is the ultimate experience.”
The organization said that riding on the horse is “one of the greatest things you can do on a daily basis.”
A representative for the group did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
It is not the first time that the association has spoken out in favor of a horse riding sport.
In 2016, the organization endorsed the idea of a “Peloton” for the sport.
