2011 AMHR Chariot Races - Parade Lap and 1st Heat

I attended the Nationals and this year on Friday night "real chariots" races were held.

Before you watch these: CAUTION. Driving Chariots is dangerous.
  • Do not try this without have many hours of driving experience.
  • Make sure your horse is well trained so you can control him during the excitement of the contest
  • Carefully inspect and make sure everything on your chariot is in good shape (During one chariot class, a driver's chariot broke where the shaft attaches to the chariot. Luckily the driver was able to stop the horse before the shaft dug into the ground and could flip the chariot.)
  • Practice the proper gaits and enter the driving classes before you even consider entering a chariot race.

Parade Lap and First Heat
More heats after I get them processed. Also will list winners.
