Horse vs Horsepommel horse vs. pommel horse
Each June an extraordinary event is held in the small village of Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales. A man versus horse marathon that is not really 26.2 mile, pit runner versus horse and their passengers for 24 mile while they are climbing 4,683 foot through the lanes and tracks of the city. The 11th of June 650 people and 60 horse and equestrian couples fought for victory.
Horse and Hound reports that the two-legged rivals of the event have only outpaced their four-legged rivals twice, since its creation in 2004 and once in 2007. One horse called Rheidol Petra, rode by Lola Evans, won with a 2:30:00 h. There are some speculations that in extreme heat the runner is preferred as the horse overheats more quickly.
Which is indisputably true is that it will take a great deal of workout to be up to the duty or else end up like this bloke who was pulling a mutt when he - probably with the help of alcohol - ran that Thoroughbrad at a rail in Australia at the beginning of the year.
One way or another, Man Versus Horse will keep on testing riders from all over the globe to overtake their rivals.
