Come on, jump on your skateboard and connect it to your horse; the adrenaline junkies do it, so why can't you?
Three years ago, Daniel Fowler-Prime invented 'Horse Boarding', but at the time, he just did this for fun and laughs. He soon realized that it could be considered a sport, so this summer, he is proud to organize Britain's first Horse Boarding Championship.
The riders wear protective pressure suits and communicate with the horse rider to adapt speed and acceleration, although the people thinking to try out the sport have to be prepared for some 'serious bumps'. They say if you fall off of the board at high speeds, it can be compared to jumping out of a car at 30 mph.
Being the newest equestrian sport in a while, this new sport is gaining popularity rather quickly. With competing teams, which is made up of a board rider, a horse and a horse rider, they will take on a race which is on a 100 meter course. If you cross the finish line first, you are declared the winner.
If you like to ride on horses, and if you like to skateboard, then maybe this new sport will be on your mind for a while.
Learn Something Fun: One of the first horses was called a Hyracotherium. It lived about 50 million years ago and was as tall as a fox. It had toes! This horse changed over millions of years to become a modern horse.
