Horsemanning is arguably older than any of the other crazes featured in our list. According to the Horsemanning.com website, the fad, which derives its name from the Headless Horseman character in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, first came to prominence in the 1920s. Modern recreations began trending again recently, and the craze quickly spread across the globe. The aim is to make it appear as if your noggin has been sliced clean off by the Headless Horseman himself - an effect achieved by getting one person to lay with their head hidden, while another hides their body.
