Equestrian activities have, for years, seemed like an obvious gap on the platform

It can’t be that difficult to open the app to more activities. I know horse riding is a big part of the strava community. Making this happen will put a smile on a lot of people’s faces.

Apple Watch has an equestrian feature. I would love to be able to track my rides on multiple different horses. I don’t understand the comments on how it would pollute since it would be its own category. I do like the comment of breaking it down into cross country and arena based. I have recently started riding bikes, but have been riding horses for years. It’s a sport just like all the rest but it is not looked upon in the same regard as most sports. And it would clarify the problems with people using the MTB option.

Como ainda não existe a atividade " Cavalgada " sendo que é uma atividade física exigente e que equivale tanto quanto uma forte caminhada.

100% agree, this would be a great addition to the activities catalogue! the leg, arm, and core workout you get from riding is insane, especially when you factor in the range of horsetivities — jumping, xcx, barrel racing, endurance, etc...

Absolutely! When considering not only horse riding, but also more sports, a Strava for Equestrian Sports would be created : ) We are commenting on a post from 2022. It seems a bit absurd to me that Strava hasn't done anything about it yet.

I don't know why Strava seem so adverse to adding equestrian activities. 

My suggestions would be riding and carriage driving.  I love tracking my rides and drives and looking at the stats. I currently, along with lots of other people it seems, use the bicycle option, this must mess with the league tables!

Please add horse riding and driving.

Thanks

Yes Strava, we are not asking for all equestrian sports, just horse riding, which in itself is a physical activity of at least medium intensity.

04/24 now and I still don't see horseback riding on my strava app on Android. Strava, please add this feature in whatever shape or form so that we don't pollute the data from other activities.

How difficult is it to fulfill a very simple request like this Strava? It doesn't have to be all sports, but just horse riding. It would help a lot.

I don't get it why is it such a big problem 😅😅 in these days it's almost annoying, sad and not understandable 🙄 Why are you ignoring us, Strava??

Hi Jane and the Strava community team.

I see there are only 9 items under consideration, including our request to add horse riding/equestrian which has been running since 2022!

There have been some excellent suggestions on how to do it and what to add, and to-date we have had no response. 

There are 50 other activities available on Strava, why no equestrian sports?

At the moment people are polluting your other activity stats by logging their activities under other options.

I think we are owed a response... either way... How long does something stay 'under consideration'? What is the issue?

We are all happy to help make this happen, but please respond...

Thank u

Absolutely! The monthly fee is not cheap.

Is this actually under consideration? It’s been that way for years, with zero feedback.

Hi

Could Strava please confirm that they are considering the many requests to include Equestrian activities on Strava? You are potentially missing out on millions of users (& their subscriptions), that at the moment are either not using Strava or are masquerading as other user groups as they don't have their own. Contrary to popular belief horse riding is a very strenous activityfor the rider as well as the horse, just as carriage driving needs strong core muscles just to stay on the carriage. It seems you have included mobility scooters, (my dad has one as he is severely disabled and the only effort required is his right hand on the accelerator/brake)!

It really doesnt make sense to discriminate against a group of sports people in this way.

Could you please reply so at least we know if someone actually reads these ideas & your reasoning for excluding such a large user group?

I’ve sent the developers and both CEO’s an email. Don’t spam them with this but I do agree it is time they add horse riding to strava.
