Inspired by this video we are recognizing a niche group of runners out there who can’t bear to leave their trusty steeds behind.

The challenge: run the entire race with your hobby horse in tow.

Creativity is encouraged! Hobby horse aficionados take high pride in the sport’s do-it-yourself attitude and we don’t expect anything less.

THE RULES:

  • Hobby horse must be at least 1 metre long, ears to tail

  • Horse must be ridden for the duration of the race

  • Tack is at the discretion of the rider

  • Galloping not required

  • Riders may choose any event to participate in (new in 2018), but please notify us that you're competing in the hobby-horse category.

  • We will have special prizes for all horse and rider teams.

Giddy up! (email registration@goldenultra.com or give us a shout out on social media with a pic of you and your horse).
