Sports That Shouldn't Be Considered Sports

In my opinion they just shouldn't be counted as sports and should be included in a different category.

The Top Ten

1 Horseback Riding Horseback Riding Horseback riding (or Equestrian) is one of the most intense sports known to man. Not only because it's physically challenging, but it takes more than athleticism. Horseback riding takes commitment, time, patience, and most importantly building a bond with your horse. If you don't have a good relationship ...read more.
