A sport may change soon.  Athletes now do 5 tasks.  They fence, swim, shoot lasers, run, and jump hurdles while riding horses.

What may shift?  Horses may rest.  People might climb and jump instead! 

Pray: Thank God for your health. Can you climb, run, or bike? God gives you strength for all kinds of fun.

But athletes have to ride horses they have never met. Some horses refuse to jump. People worry that horses may be stressed or mistreated. One fix is to remove the horse events. Athletes could complete an obstacle course instead. 

The Bible teaches, “Know well the condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds.” (Proverbs 27:23)
