Hufkratzer, do you know when landuse=animal_keeping should be used
instead of landuse=farmyard or landuse=meadow?

(The linked forum discussion was originally about a riding arena or
riding ground, which should be tagged leisure=pitch, sport=equestrian.
I don't think that's an issue. An equestrian riding centre can be
tagged leisure=sports_centre or leisure=horse_riding, though the
former tag is much more widely used. See:
