Russian snowboarders horsing about

Snowboarding can be slow work without steep hills to race down, but some thrill-seekers in Russia have found a way around the problem - use a horse!

The snowboarders realised they'd need to be pulled along like a wind surfer if they wanted to get up to speed crossing the area's flat forests and lakes.

After trying cars, motorbikes and snowmobiles, they decided that horse power is best.

With just a snowboard, a harness, and a galloping horse, they've made a whole new sport, and it looks pretty a-neigh-zing!
