Mountain Bike vs Horse: Thrill Seeking in the Saddle

For those of you who follow us on Instagram, you may have seen the clip we shared of top event rider Louisa Milne Home taking on renowned British mountain biker Danny MacAskill in a challenge to see if horsepower could match Danny’s pedal power.


The pair tackled the cross-country course at Lindores, Fife, Scotland in speed and in style for a short film to promote Danny’s skills and tricks.

Louisa’s horse, Intermediate eventer, 17hh Irish bred Future Plan took on the challenge like a pro explains Louisa:

“Jack loved it! And we certainly gave Danny a run for his money!”

Danny, whose last video outing to a farm and holiday business attracted over 24 million views on YouTube said of the experience:

“Clips like this are just entertaining and fun to create, it was a bit off the cuff having never biked over horse jumps or really been around horses, but I love doing new stuff.”

Louisa Milne Home riding in her Childéric Event Saddle joked:

“This was certainly a very different training day to the normal international riders I compete with.”
