Extreme Trailing Riding

If you are a fan of equestrian events you may not be familiar with one of the newest forms of the sport: Extreme trail horse competitions. Here's what it's all about.

Extreme trail events feature a set of obstacles, either indoor or outdoor, that riders must complete for the best time. Similar to Rally car racing, but with horses. Events range from novice trots to expert rides with no speed limit. Here is a clip of an extreme trail ride in action:

Extreme trail riding is a showcase not only of riding ability, but of a horse's ability to react to different situations. It's an exciting alternative to traditional equestrian events.
