NBA horse challenge was created for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro by sports enthusiasts in Brazil. The idea was to take a horse racing event to another level and create competition with the best teams on earth. The idea came from a trip to a horse event with the world championship champions. The idea was to use live horses for this event. As they would be riding across the Olympic Park, their horses would be tied up and the whole experience would be like a race. The challenge was to win the race and collect the most points. The teams were given the first five points and the winner goes on to face the next best horse in the world.
For instance last year the best team in the race was the US and the US team took home 16 points and the second best was the UK which took the gold. In this year’s contest, horses from the US and UK have been tied and the winner will be determined in a best of five match. The teams are split into two groups (of five to start) and the first group of horses will have to go to South Africa to see if they have what it takes to stay on top.
NBA player joins horses to compete
NBA star Dwyane Wade has teamed up with Jockey Unlimited to help promote a “horse challenge” which will see him and the US equine team compete across the Brazilian equestrian area.
In the past, Wade and his teammates have raced their horses in front of NBA fans along with other athletes on horseback at the NBA All-Star game in January.
The idea of horse challenge is to bring a sporting event to an even higher level and showcase the best that the US equine program have to offer.
