Brave souls

It is not uncommon to see horseback acrobats entertaining guests during events. While many of us stick to conventional games like tennis and swimming, there are those brave souls that prefer taking things a notch higher. However, horse games are not for the faint-hearted as evidenced by these horsemen who took part in the Royal Horse Show in Toronto, Canada. There were painful moments when most riders ended up being thrown into the air, leaving the crowd gasping. Looks like they got a little more than they bargained for. Well, if you thought riding a horse was easy, think again!
