Ride and Tie. Hmm, that's a different twist on Multi-Sport.

I met a lady during last Sunday's run who's into "Ride and Tie". Apparently these folks have teams of 3. Two people and a horse. The races have the horse being ridden ahead, then tied to a tree. The person riding the horse then runs ahead while the person behind catches up to the parked horse, then rides ahead of the runner. And repeat. You get the idea.

The girl is going to compete this weekend in a 25 mile race. Hmm, sounds like fun. Not unlike a triathlon or duathlon. But it seems there aren't a lot of participants around here, mainly a California thing. Now that's a different sort of sport, eh?
