DIRTY LAUNDRY RACE –The clothes don’t have to be dirty to start but they end up that way!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Starting line marker
- 2 laundry baskets
- 32 items of clothing made up of coinciding pairs, i.e. – 2 shirts, 2 scarves, 2 jackets, a pair of rubber boots, etc. Obviously you can have more than 2 of each item, they just have to be divided evenly between the 2 baskets. The more outrageous the clothes, the better.
Divide riders into 2 teams of 4. One rider from each team lines up at the starting line. They ride down to the baskets which are side by side at far end of arena. They jump down and put on 4 items of clothing. They can’t put 2 of any item on. For example, they can’t put on 2 hats or 2 scarves or even 2 boots and whatever they put on must stay on as they run on foot leading their horses back to the starting point. Once they get back, the next rider from that team can start down to the basket and so on, until the last member of the team wears the last 4 items over the finish line.
