Duplicate Keywords - List #18 (Proposals for Permanent Merger and Auto-Conversion)

Here is the next installment of my lists of proposed keywords for permanent merger and auto-conversion. 

I am posting this for fellow contributors to review first and raise any objections or questions. I will wait at least seven days before changing this post to a "problem" post and asking IMDb staff to make the proposed mergers.

The mergers should be made in the direction of the arrows.

I just realized that "horse-riding" and "horseback-riding" are the same thing, except that "horseback riding" is the American preference, while "horse riding" is the British preference. Since IMDb favors American usage over British usage, I have adjusted the keywords to favor "horseback-riding."

@keyword_expert​ Just a comment on weightlifting. There may be a need to check that none of the titles means the competitive olympic sport, which may merit a different keyword than the weightlifting you do at home or at a gym.

@Pencho15​ Good point, but there is no existing keyword for "competitive-weightlifting" or anything like that. (I did find the keyword "women's-weightlifting" but it is currently only assigned to 2 titles.)

Given all of that, is it okay to merge "lifting-weights" into "weight-lifting" and then maybe create a new keyword for "competitive-weightlifting" that could be added to titles in addition to "weight-lifting," where both are relevant?

Or do you view "lifting-weights" as a more informal form of the word (lifting weights at home) that should be kept separate from "weight-lifting?"

@Pencho15​ p.s. I just remembered to check the dictionary definition of "weightlifting," which does seem to make it okay to lump all weightlifting in together, whether at home or competitive:

the act, art, or sport of lifting barbells of given poundages in a prescribed manner, as a competitive event or conditioning exercise.

@keyword_expert​ Alright, in that case then we should have a new keyword to use in addition to weightlifting were it is relevant.

Do you think it should be "competitive-weightlifting" instead "weightlifting-the-sport"?

@Pencho15​ I see there are already keywords like "cricket-the-sport" and "hurling-the-sport " and "skeleton-the-sport." However, those keywords are used to distinguish from other meanings of the same words, like "cricket-the-insect" for example.

So I think "competitive-weightlifting" makes more sense than "weightlifting-the-sport." Especially since there are similar keywords like "competitive-diving " and "competitive-golf" and "competitive-swimmer".

@keyword_expert​ Great, I just submitted the keyword here: 2021 European Weightlifting Championships (TV Series 2021) - Reference View - IMDb so it should appear soon.

@Michelle I just realized I had forgotten to update this post to a "problem" post. I have done so now.
