Sounds crazy, but what could be a better icebreaker than selecting a horse together and uniting to cheer it to victory? Even picking the horse is a good way to get to know one another. The atmosphere is casual, and it includes food and entertainment, but it's not as restrictive as going to the movies. You can talk . . . until it's time to scream for your horse to win.
