Horse Boarding- Awesome new sport!

I went to Burghley Game Fair the other weekend and in the main arena they had a few events that caught my eye. The first was racing scurry ponies against a truck around a course of cones...the pony teams won 2 to 1 .

Second was a display of Horse Boarding, a new sport which I had never seen before and it looks like so much fun! I'll add pics and videos below, anyone got any more or does anyone play?

I wonder how many of these are the SO of the rider and this is their way to "be involved" Can't you imagine that coversation:

Hey honey, I thought about what you said about being more involved with your horse. Here's my idea...

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

I saw a video of a guy on roller blades being pulled across a jump course. The horse would jump and the guy would take a ramp and fly over the jumps. Looked way cool!

Oh my, if my husband sees this a club will be formed in our area, haha! But seriously, it looks like a riot. Have you seen extreme skijoring? Where a skiier is pulled over ramps by a horse and rider? My husband showed it to me and then tied a big log up for me to start practicing with my horse.
