A Horse With No Name

There is a man who is attempting what is supposedly the longest single ride ever made by horseback "without letting his feet touch the ground". What's interesting is that this ride is taking place right now and coincidently it is taking place on almost the same route at this years La Carrera Panamericana between Matamomos (near Lardeo) all the way to Huatulco.

The rider, an ex-bull fighter will use over 1400 horses on his 2 and a half month long ride and has a special built rig that utilizes a crane to lift him from each horse and helps him exercise and go to the bathroom and so on when needed.

I dont know about you but I can see the head lines now...
