dubious use of leisure=track

"leisure=track - gallop track (if racecourse use sport=horse_racing)" - is gallop track form of racing? Note "A track for running, cycling and other non-motorised racing such as horses, greyhounds." Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 20:22, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

See relation example, this is not a racing track (too small); on this page is a photo of this track (to the right of "ca. 700 m Galoppbahn (Sand)"). Not all gallop tracks are located on racecourses where horse racing takes place, see example photos:
  • Gallop, Sea Barn Farm - - 1557731.jpg
  • Gallop Alongside The Track To Worsley House - - 1482870.jpg
  • Gallops of Belmont Farm, Mill Hill - - 132277.jpg
  • How should they be tagged? highway=track + sport=equestrian? highway=track + horse=designated + sport=equestrian? highway=track + sport=horse_racing? leisure=track + sport=horse_racing? Or how?

    Subtags for Dressage and Jumping Arenas

    I have no idea what I am talking about but apparently there are quite specific pitch types in equestrian sport. I have seen misuse of the name tag (e.g.,, and would like to see suitable subtags to get rid of this. ;) Maybe equestrian=showjumping, equestrian=dressage etc., cf. Someone with equestrian experience please comment (possibly with a list of useful values). --Stefanct (talk) 18:30, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
