Horse-Boarding – level 1

02-07-2021 15:00

A Russian man wants a new sport to try. He wants to make a new way to do snowboarding. He tries to do it with vehicles. The vehicles cannot go where he wants to go.

He realises that horses can go in more places. He tries snowboarding with horses. He invents horse-boarding. This is when people tie themselves to horses. Then the horses drag them through the snow.

The horse-boarders do not want to make money from this sport yet. For now, they are just horsing about!

Difficult words: snowboard (a sport where you ride on a board through snow), realise (become aware), horse about (play).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
