Tag question. Little circular track area

I came across a thing here. It's a little circular track area where horses walk around in a circle. I guess it might be for training young horses. They walk with somebody holding a rope in the middle. But this is an outdoor pursuits centre, so maybe it's just a very little route for first time horse riders to go around in a circle. -- Harry Wood (talk) 12:27, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Provided I understood you correctly, this sounds to me like some kind of small riding ground. They are usually used for beginners where one person stands in the middle and holds/leads the horse while the beginner practices on it. I would tag those the same as large riding grounds. It could also be some kind of (manual) hot walker, but all I've seen up to now are mechanical devices. So I guess its up to you to figure out its main purpose; the tagging scheme should cover both. --Imagic (talk) 07:47, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

In french we call this Rond de longe. In english (american ?), this is called a Wikipedia-16px.png Round pen, and Longierplatz in german. --Pyrog (talk) 18:00, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

horse=designated on riding routes?

Section Riding routes contains a sentence: "The tag (horse=designated) might be used to specify recommend routes for horse riding, although there is no wide consensus on this."

This sentence was initially in the introduction and unrelated to tag route=horse and was only later moved to the section for riding routes. I think it makes no sense and just confuses unnecessarily. Even without horse=designated it's obvious that a riding route (relation with route=horse) is a "recommend route for horse riding".

There are currently only 2 riding routes that have tag horse=designated:

The cited sentence hasn't been translated to other languages (German, French or Spanish) yet and I didn't see anything similar in route=horse.

Is anyone against removing this sentence from the page Riding? (Even if the sentence will be removed this will not hinder anybody to write the tag to a riding route if he thinks that this is a good idea.)
