Animal racing has been common for years, this including most commonly horse racing, greyhound racing, ostrich racing, camel racing, and even pigeon racing.
The horse racing is an equestrian sport that includes flat racing, endurance racing, harness racing, and steeplechasing. Steeplechasing included horses having to leap over obstacles such as ditches and fences as they raced. Flat racing mostly consists of racing over a level racecourse, while endurance riding is based on longer distances to cover.
Greyhound racing consists of greyhounds as they are well known as the fastest canines and second fastest land animals.
Ostrich and camel racing are much rarer forms of racing and less well known among most places where other mentioned races are common.
Pigeon racing is a sport including releasing well trained pigeons who return to their homes through covering a carefully measured distance to arrive there.
