Add Horseback Riding and Carriage Driving as activity types

I use Strava to track my horseback rides and carriage drives.  I've also recommended it to other riders/drivers.

  • And here another 'me too' for the horseriding option.

    At the moment I use Hiking to register my horseriding activities, but as I'm going to start that as a hobby as well, I really need the horseriding option.
    I do trailrunning (also not available, but I accept it as running), horseriding, walking/wandering and hiking.

    Please, please add horseriding!

  • Yeah here is my mee too contribution, I would like to be able to track horse riding activities with strava. Consider this is a very common sport and part of modern pentathlon for example. Tanks !

  • And there will be nothing, they just don't like horse riders. Typical animal rights.. Poor horses. I am a software engineer. This is 30 minutes of work, with testing and all involved 2 days max. Yoga is on the list, please add chess, domino, even cooking before horse riding!!! How bout farting?

  • If you go back to the beginning of this feed you can see I was the second person to request horse riding be included in the suite of sports covered by Strava. Well it's now over four years since the request was made and in that time some of the most obscure and some might say ridiculous sports have been included, but not horse riding! So if Strave don't care then neither will I! I will continue to use MTB as my preference for horse riding and destroy all the MTB riders in my and other areas where I ride my horses. It makes a mockery of any attempts by MTB riders to try and compare their efforts to my horse riding times. It's obviously an easy fix, I just can't understand why Strava wouldn't do it!

    Clearly Strava will not change it and clearly they agree with most people that even though horse riding might be considered a sport, it's not a activity that belongs on their platform.  If you are not happy with the platform, vote with your feet and leave!  Join a platform that does support your activity.  No need to be a pest/bully and disturb MTB riders that do enjoy this platform.

    I certainly hope Strava will ban you if you willingly mess up their platforms data.

  • Hmmm! Looks like Mark P above is not a horse riding fan. What he has failed to appreciate is, firstly I am both an MTB rider as well as a road cycling rider. Have been so for many many years and I don't want another application to cover my horse riding, I use Strava for my cycling activities and can't understand why they cannot provide a horse riding option when considering the number of diverse activities that they've already included! Secondly if you consider how many Strava users have bothered to respond to this request, and that they would represent only a small number of the actual horse riding community who use Strava, then it is a no-brainer that to provide this activity option would be of great value to the Strava community.

  • I am not a horse riding fan, but I am also not bothered by it in any way.  What I am bothered by is your anti-social behaviour.  The MTB riders in your region have nothing to do with the lack support for horse riding on Strava.  Yet you decide to annoy them (and your post even seems to imply you enjoy annoying them!). Instead of focusing on a solution you bring negativity to the platform.

    What you could do instead is select an activity type that you normally don't use, and make the activity only available to you and your followers.  Then the data you upload has no impact on the KOM/QOM tables, while you still get all the statistics you want.

  • I agree with Mark P's last paragraph. We use hike, walk and ride activities on Strava. Ride is the one we use with our horses. If we ever interfere with KOM/QOM top tens we use the option to hide the results so as not to affect the statistics of those who are into the competitive nature of that activity. Interestingly not everyone is savy about using the correct activity. There are times we are on a non bike trail and see bike use when we record that activity on our horses. It's usually someone who is a runner, hiker or walker that has that activity as their default and neglects to change it.

  • Or alternatively Strava could simply provide horse riding as an activity option! :)

  • Does anyone know what the hell a Velomobile is??  I thought not.  Get real Strava.  I will not be ordering summit until you get more inclusive with real sports -- horse back riding is older than anything else on this site.
