Evidence:
Also know as equestrian, horseback riding is a very popular sport even today. It has a high level of competition and is very deep in its complexity. It is even part of the Summer Olympics.

Difficulty
One of the most difficult sports today...
1. Activity

2. Skill

3. Physical Power

4. Competition

5. Difficulty

1. It is an organized spending of time.

2. Horseback riding requires years of practice to reach just an amateur status.

3. Communication and control is essential.

4. There is both absolute competitions, such as dressage, polo, horse racing, rodeos, hunter/jumper, eventing, trails, horsemanship, showmanship, etc. Also, there is friendly practice among getting better as a rider, known as inner competition.

5. The rider must keep complete balance, or they risk being inured. The art uses every single one of your muscles, often at the same time.

In Conclusion...
All you do is sit on the horse.
The horse does all of the work.
All horses are cooperative or fully trained.
Actually, you have to post, control, balance, two point, stand, set up, help lift the horse's legs or hocks, etc.
This is a very similar claim, but the rider and the horse are a team.
Several horses have issues or conditions that limit their ability to be fully trained. Also, most horses have to be worked on relentlessly before an understanding and bond is formed between the rider and the horse.
