Interesting. On one hand, I'm for preserving culture, but on the other I'd fear taking a shot from one of those horses.

It's like Blazing Saddles, but reverse.

Tradition is tradition. 500 years is a very long time. If humans fight each other, then why do we call horse fighting "inhumane"?

Because horses are supposed to be BETTER than humans! Haven't you read Guillver's Travels? ;)

If there are no humans to ride the horse, then doesn't that defeat the purpose? :p

I say if it is so much fun why not let the horse fight unarmed men instead of another horse. These are noble creatures and deserve better from us. Moreover, humans are considered the only intelligent life form on this planet. I would say this is evidence to the contrary.

Where is that The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement thread, I would like these people to volunteer.
