Early in 2005 the Independent horse, working with The Company of Horsemen and Matt Smith from Air Jam of Newquay, were the first in the world to tow a kite board behind a horse. This was the birth of horse surfing . In the summer of that year the Daily Mail printed one of our pictures. Since then the Independent Horse has become the horse surfing team that the world wants to know about, getting recognition from Australia and Taiwan to America and the Middle East.
This was the beginning of horse surfing and over recent years the team has continued to push the limits and break new ground with world firsts. They were the first and only team in the world to trick ride and tow at the same time.
