Maybe only hold sports popular with the US TV networks, perhaps rename the whole thing ESPN? BTW, I'm no dressage fan myself.

well, one of the big reasons they got rid of baseball for 2012 (and 2016...might come back at the earliest 2020) was the inability between IOC and WBA to agree on a standard doping test standard....hypocritical IMO considering the IOC's history of punishing athletes caught doping...

as far as "appeal" i don't care how "'regional" a sport is, (baseball to the americas and east asia, cricket to british commonwealth, etc) if its played by more than 5 nations it should be an olympic sport, and not these boring, aristocratic "sports" like dressage

5 nations only, surely it would take 4 years to get through the events? I suspect equestrianism is popular in the vast majority of the 200+ competing nations, I would suggest including the US. Personally I don't follow it but I'm sure many do.
Archery was pretty sick.. interested in seeing some Oly handball.
