Defining the term “Warmblood” has and probably always will be a highly debatable topic for those of us in the horse world. Not only will this plan be great for citizens and families that want to have fun at the track and put a little skin on the race, it is also likely to be a great job creator that could improve local communities.

The current revenue model behind social media can only increase polarization, fake news, discussions, tensions, and contradictions. After all, the best way to hold social media users’ attention is to arouse emotions in them. The influence of social media on what we see and read is becoming increasingly clear. The Social Dilemma shows that this is not a mistake. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram know exactly what to feed us. And we are all too eager to catch their bait. Through the AI they use, they know more and more about us by analyzing our online behavior. These social media companies use (abuse this information. E-Sports don’t have levels of play like this (sure there’s the CAL and CPL but it doesn’t work the same way). Either you are competing or you’re not. I think to be considered a sport, MLG should remedy this by incorporating a minor league where players are farmed from to competing in the majors.

In most major sports leagues like the NBA, NHL, NFL, and MLB, there are minor leagues or college level play. This is how players make it up to the majors, they play through college and then get drafted to a team or play in the minors, prove themselves, and are called up. In E-Sports, there’s no minors. You don’t have to prove yourself to compete, you just pay to enter an event. I can’t tell you the number of times I have watched a sports game on TV to hear an announcer say something along the lines of ‘You’re in the Majors, you should be able to make that play’ or something similar.

There’s a reason when major league players in MLB are sent down to the minors on a rehab assignment or something that they dominate or that a player who might dominate at triple A or the AHL for hockey might suck in the NHL or MLB, it’s a completely different level of play. When my cousin, Laura Jean, was 14 & visiting (I was about 10), we got the not-too-brilliant notion to ride over to the next ranch, because they had a bottle-gas-powered refrigerator, and at our ranch – no such thing. We really wanted some really cold ice water, or – better still – maybe some ice cream. Without telling anyone our plan, we saddled up Old Blue and headed out, – both on the one horse – really having no idea how to get there, across the pastures between the two ranch compounds. There was a time when we viewed a horse as being just another food source. But once people learned to ride, this opened up a whole new world; the horse was a fast means of transport, and over hundreds of years, a new relationship between man and horse was forged.

Although the Romans prized large horses in battle for their strength, Asians preferred smaller, more nimble and sure-footed ones. Dutch Warmblood horses are becoming increasingly popular in the United Kingdom and the United States, not only for their incredibly good looks but also for their impressive athleticism and calm, friendly temperament.
