With almost two months of daily rain in Vancouver, some people had to come up with creative new ways to enjoy outdoor time, and it included a lot of horsing around.
Residents of the Southlands neighbourhood took the opportunity to create a new watersport – “Ditch Boarding.”
The equine community found a flooded ditch and decided to use it for a variation of wakeboarding. Only instead of being towed by a boat, they used their pony.
They call it an equestrian team sport.
A video of the shenanigans was posted to YouTube last week, and already has over 6,000 views.
It hearkens back to last year’s viral video that showed a man snowboarding through New York City’s snowy streets while being pulled by a truck.
