Question What are all the different types of horse sports?

I'm really into fitness training and I ride really well. I'm looking for an exciting, hrad challenge to do. I learn very fast once some one shows me what to do. Whats an extreme horse sport I could do? Extreme; not meaning a way to injur a horse. I love horses to death

Thanks yall!

I thought barrel racing was exciting. And cutting, but that requires more of a specialized training than barrel racing.

100 mile endurance racing, look up AERC, or even multi day XP rides.

If you are up for travelling, look up the Mongol Derby... I know a few people who took part in the last one and they said it was a fantastic experience.

Get into racing.

You don't have to become a jockey but start learning how to trackride and get to the stage where you are jumping horses out of gates and doing gallops.

Plus the added bonus of getting paid =]]

Not one that I've done but definitely looks cool is the new mounted shooting competitions! You get to be an old school cowboy and race around on your horse and shoot balloons!

Walking with your child out on the Leadrein, then running for what seems like miles to keep up as he learns to trot

Just want to say that cutting does NOT require more specialized training. It just requires different training.

It can take up to 2 years to have a finished cutting horse, just like it can take up to 2 years to have a finished barrel horse. There's a lot more to barrel racing training than people think. (Although yes, there are the back country local show folks who just hop on their horse and spur/whip around 3 cans with no training whatsoever. Gives the rest of us who do it right a bad name.)

To the OP: For myself, I think that Cowboy Mounted Shooting, the Tevis 100, 3-day eventing, and exercising racehorses on the track would be some adrenaline pumps!
