Horse racing is one of the world's most popular animal sports as we know.

However, there are more sports games with attendants of animals in the world.

Check out the most bizzare ten of them.

10. Elephant Polo

Elephant polo is a variant of polo played whilst riding elephants. It is played in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Rajasthan (India), and Thailand.

9. Horse Soccer

Equine behaviorists have long recognized the negative effects of stable stress on horses, and a group of them decided to create a game to ease the tension.

That's how horse soccer was invented. Horses enjoy playing soccer alone or with their riders.

Anew form of horse soccer is played with a large ball such as the one above.

Horses and riders form teams and set up soccer goals. The horses, guided by their riders, kick or nudge the ball toward the team's goal.

8. Ferret Legging

Ferret Legging is a test of endurance or just the ability to “have your tool bitten and not care.”, the rules of the sport are pretty tight.

Competitors have two ferrets placed inside their trousers, which are tied firmly at the ankles and belted up at the waist, thereby eliminating any point of escape for the furry creatures.

The competitor then stands before judges, enduring the misery of the ferrets' razor-sharp claws and teeth.

Other rules state that competitors cannot be drunk and the ferrets must not be sedated.

Also, the ferrets must have a full set of teeth that have not been blunted or filed. The man who stands the longest, wins.
