Sports as Art
I have thought for a long time about whether or not hunting, falconry, and equestrian â€˜artsâ€™ should properly be called arts, or whether we are looking at something altogether new. Are they martial exercises? Should the expert practition ers of these arts be rewarded laurels, pelicans, or knighthood s? I donâ€™t have the final answer to this question, but I hope to advance some thoughts to stimulate discussion and to crystalliz e my own thinking on the subject.
