Mario Kart on Horseback Will Satisfy Your Childhood Video Game Memories

Posted by Paige Cerulli

What happens when two riders get bored and want to spice up their riding a bit? Mario Kart on horseback. 

Chances are that, at some point, you played Mario Kart when you were growing up. We all know the crazy game featuring Mario and Luigi. You drove like a madman, crashing into things, sliding off the track, and even trying to topple the cars of other players. It was vicious. Well, now two riders have upped the game with their own version of Mario Kart on horseback.

Now, I'm all for a good gallop on the flat, but these riders go all-out with their crazy game of Mario Kart. It's complete with outfits, shoving each other, and even throwing objects, including a banana peel, back and forth. Crazy? Yes. Dangerous? Probably. Hilarious? Definitely.

Take a look at this crazy video. And please, don't try this at home.

As much as we all love Mario Kart, there are simpler - and safer - ways to spice up your riding. Think about trying out a different discipline, or just start riding a different horse for a change of pace. Take a clinic with a different trainer to gain new perspectives on riding. Try out equine agility, or take your horse for a ride on the beach.

And if you should decide that playing Mario Kart on horseback is a good idea, then please be careful! We're glad to see that these two riders made it through the experience unscathed.
