Merging proposal

It has been proposed that this page or section be merged with Tag:sport=equestrian. I agree that horse racing is a kind of equestrian sport. But it has its own tag value that has already been used quite a lot and the editors link to the corresponding wiki pages. Horse racing is also usually practised at other places than the other equestrian sports. What would be the advantage of merging it with sport=equestrian and how should that be done? Is there a good example somewhere of a similar case? --Hufkratzer (talk) 22:10, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Nowbody seeme to have an idea why and how this page should be merged with Tag:sport=equestrian. From wikipedia:fr:Sport_équestre: "Les sports équestres regroupent des disciplines équestres diverses et variées dont la finalité première n'est pas de remporter une course, à la différence des courses hippiques." which is translated by Google translator: "Equestrian sports consist of diverse and varied equestrian disciplines whose primary purpose is not to win a race, unlike horse racing.". From wikipedia:fr:Sport_hippique: "Le sport hippique ne doit pas être confondu avec les sports équestres (en partie olympiques) dont les disciplines les plus connues sont le saut d'obstacles, le dressage et le concours complet. Certaines disciplines de sport équestre se rapportent néanmoins à la course, comme l'endurance équestre." which means: "Horse racing sport should not be confused with equestrian sports (partly Olympic), the most famous of which are show jumping, dressage and eventing. Some equestrian sports disciplines nevertheless relate to horse racing, such as equestrian endurance." I think we can count the merging proposal as abandoned and remove the corresponding box. Is anyone against that? --Hufkratzer (talk) 15:57, 19 November 2016 (UTC)
