Argentine Cowhide Sledding

ifaj13-cowhide-sledWhat do Argentine gauchos do out in the pampas when they are bored and maybe have had a little too much Quilmes to drink? They tie dried cowhides to their horses and drag each other around in them.

Seriously. I don’t know what it’s called – there must be a name for it – so I just call it cowhide sledding. Who knows? It could become an Olympic sport.
