At least it would be another competition where men and women can compete side by side.

If curling and the Iditarod count as sports...

I vote for anything that puts equestrian stuff in anything.

You know, I think the ski jumps by a guy being pulled on a rope by a horse is absolutely awesome...

Still, I can't help wondering what dogs and horses might think of people?

I mean, if they really were capable of complex thought and communication a la Disney movies...

Would that horse, say, go back to the stable and have a conversation like this:

Bill: "Hey, Frank, how was your day?"
Frank: "Blah."
Bill: "Why the long face?"
Frank: "You wouldn't believe what those @#$@@#$ people were up to today..."
Bill: "What."
Frank: "Never mind, just....nevermind. Opposible thumbs must cause insanity. That's all I gotta say."
Bill: "True dat, Frank. True dat."

I did once hook a plastic sled up behind my horse just to see if I survived. I did, but things got interesting.

I think skijoring would be a blast. As long as you didn't end up under the horse!
