Horse-Boarding – level 2

02-07-2021 15:00

A Russian man wanted a new sport to try, as he was looking for new and exciting ways to get a thrill.

He tried using a car, a motorcycle and a snowmobile as new methods of snowboarding, but the vehicles could not get into the areas that he wanted to go.

Then he tried the same idea with horses and pioneered horse-boarding. People tie themselves to horses that then drag them through the snow.

The horse-boarders do not plan to make money off of their invention yet. For now, it is just horsing about!

Difficult words: thrill (something exciting), pioneer (invent), horse about (play, be silly).

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