This could be really fun for someone.  I'm looking for 50 tough to
really tough trivia questions about horses, the equestrian world,
riders, trainers, or anything else relating to the industry.  Ideally,
the questions will have some relation to English riding, Hunter and
Jumper, or Dressage.  Questions shouldn't really be related to Western
riding or trail riding.  More competition focused.  This is for a
class project for my students, but I haven't the time to do the
research.  Thanks for whomever might help.
