There are many correct answers to this question. It depends on which part of the world you live in, which era your referring to, even some regional answers would be different. Horse Racing, Falconing, Polo, Fox Hunting or even the album title by Triumph (I don't remember the year)
With that said I would probably answer "Falconing" since that was practiced all over Europe the Middle East and Asia.
Hooray, Congratulations you got it right. Sorry I have no prize though!! Whilst horse racing, polo and fox hunting are sports of Kings, it is Falconry that is deemed to be the sport of kings and is the oldest sport known to man. Since 680 BC
Two horses, including the favourite, had to be put down after the Grand National on Saturday. Several more horses and jockeys were injured. I know there is a lot of tradition around this race, but is it time...
