Horse Boarding is a Mashup of Horseback Riding and Mountain Boarding

Horseback riding and mountain boarding collide in Britain's newest sport, horse boarding. The sport of horse boarding does not involve waterboarding a horse; instead, horse boarding sees a mountain boarder being towed by a horseback rider.

Daniel Fowler-Prime, the sport's inventor and a professional stunt horse rider, has organized Britain's first horse boarding championship to take place over the summer. The championship will be held on a farm with two teams racing against each other on a 100-meter course. I have to admit that the images and the video make horse boarding seem a tad tame, but Fowler-Prime has reportedly hit speeds of over 30 mph while horse boarding. If that isn't enough to get your heart racing, I don't know what will. The Olympics had better watch their back. Stats for Extreme Equestrian Sports Trending: Older & Chilly
