Is there a place where you could upload new types of sports? ie I'd like to add horseback riding or something.

No there is not and it does not appear they are adding any more sports modes, that is what they added Freestyle and gym modes for. Freestyle is for any GPS enabled non-core activities and Gym for non-GPS enabled activities. If they start adding sports modes then you may want equestrian sports and I may want football and someone else may want paddle sports, this is why then went with the generic Freestyle. The existing sports also tie into the lifetime totals on MySports. If they add more sports modes they would also need to redesign all of MySports to capture them. You should try using Freestyle it gets you distance based on GPS and calories based on HR so it will be the most accurate (cycling and running use METs for calories and ignore HR).

I imagine this is not what you were hoping to hear but let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so other can look for it if they have the same question.

    Hey, I'm using the freestyle already. Was just asking because polar has an 'equestrian' mode. No probs, I'll continue using Freestyle. It would be nice if it would be possible to use 'freestyle' as recording mode, but be able to change the 'sports title' or something as to reflect the actual sport you did when doing the freestyle.

    You can rename the activity in MySports but cannot change the activity type as those are hard coded to align with the monthly and annual totals and progress tables.
