Fast facts

  • Just like regular soccer, horse soccer has two teams that try to kick, pass and shoot a ball through a goal to earn as many points as possible.
  • In the equine rendition, the ball is a 3-foot-tall inflatable sphere, and horses are the ones who use their legs, heads and bodies to maneuver it.
  • Each team has one goalie.
