Pygmy horses are carried on the backs of big strapping lads around existing race courses.

Fences on steeplechase courses would probably need steps either side, as even a big strapping lad couldn't jump over a fence with a horse on his back.

       as long as they had to run around on all fours and gallop through loads of mud, and make stupid horse noises - made me laugh [+]

       They'd need [jhomrighaus]'s Horsey Ride Shin Pads.

       I've got a colleague who once won a steeplechase against a pony in her younger years. She comes from a village waaaaaaay back in the forest where there's not much to do.

       This is brilliant. For the sake of authenticity, all the horses should be
a) Irish and
b) wearing specially designed garish silk shirts
and the strapping lads should be
a) of Arabian extraction and
b) called things like "Alf Ramsey's Porn Dungeon" and "Ramalalaggripina."

       To really make it competitive, the first person to win the race OR make their horse collapse is the winner. That way they will be encouraged to run the horse as fast and as hard as they possibly can.

       Would they wear saddles of some kind?

I wish I had time to draw this one, it sooo deserves an image.
I'm picturing garbage can sized chariot races.
  

       WHhppPSH !   

       Actually inverse chariot racing would be much more practical.   

       There's a sentence you don't hear every day.
