Creative Horse Power

Horse & Hound reported on a “new extreme sport”, “horseboarding”, in which a human on a kind of skateboard/ski board with wheels is dragged behind a galloping horse and rider for 100m.

“This is a fast, adrenalin-fuelled equine team sport,” [organiser Daniel Fowler-Prime] said. “And it is growing — we have people from all over the country coming to try it.”

Groovy sk8er boi newness, no? Well, maybe, but look what I found at Atlantic Monthly, which has published facsimiles of the sketchbooks of Alexander Graham Bell. Horseback power-kite flying!
