A recent question about a possibly compromised phone was tagged hacking. I wondered why we would have that, and it turns out the word refers to just riding a horse for fun. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleasure_riding . I think at the least we should update the usage guidance to include this. But since there is only one question in the tag, should we perhaps change it to a less-specific horse riding tag? There are only 13 questions tagged horses and many of them are about non-riders encountering horses.

    This tag is terribly misleading and totally unnecessary. Commented Jun 2, 2022 at 21:27

    I vote for merging all equestrian tags Commented Jun 7, 2022 at 15:07

    As we have so few horse-riding questions, a tag merge would seem reasonable (perhaps with synonyms)

I would raise the point that hacking is one of the core non-competitive activities when riding horses, but we don't have the question numbers for the distinction to be relevant.
