The Grand Splashional

Forget the Grand National – these barmy jockeys are taking part in the Grand SPLASHIONAL. These riders have taken horse racing to new limits – by racing each other through the waves on SURF BOARDS attached to their horse’s saddles. Just a short cord attaches the surfer to the horse and rider – who can travel at speeds of up to 35mph through the waves. Daredevil surfers and riders have even taken to racing each other through the surf in beaches in Baule, on the west coast of France
