At Groveland Equestrian Center (GEC) we are always looking for new and interesting ways to use our horses. Lately we have been noticing a game increasing in popularity outside of the United States, called HorseBall. In the spring we are looking to start hosting some practices if enough people are interested. What are your thoughts on this new sport? Have you found any other interesting sports you would like to try?
