Animals that Drag People Around

I DO have a sheltie, though.  So my style is probably more like this:


Okay, I had to post this gorgeous photo of REAL dog sledding. Dogs can sled 90 miles in one day!
Dogs pulling people around is as old as time, but you have to check out these other animals that pull, or even carry, people!


Riding a buffalo!Who knew you could do that?

Did you know you can ride the Texas Longhorn?


Now, wait! People can actually ride a moose?  
Ha ha, I didn't know that.

A really good reason for riding animals is racing them, and there are some interesting races going on in the world...
Believe it or not, England has both ostrich AND zebra racing!

In winter, it's fun to race reindeer:
And no, the reindeer aren't in distress...they tend to run with their tongues out  :)


In the hotter parts of the world, look for camel racing!





What fun! There is also yak riding and elephant riding.  

But I had to dig deep in the archives to find improbable animals pulling carts. Take a look at these old photos!
Pigs pulling a milk cart! And just where was the mother of those kids in the lion cart?  

Then there's this:


What kind of animal do you want to ride? Leave me a comment!
