First there was "planking," then there was "leisure diving," then "owling," then the combo known as "plowling." In a crowded pack of internet memes, "horsemaning" is poised to take over the coveted throne of Facebook fad of the month.

Dubbed "the next level of planking," horsemaning actually claims historical roots. A popular way to pose for photographs in the 1920's, the fad derives its name from the Headless Horseman, of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."

The objective of horsemaning is to make it appear that the photo's subject has been beheaded, using two people to create the eerie effect.

Horsemaning now boasts dozens of Facebook pages with several countries hosting local chapters of the Internet photo fad.

According to one Facebook Page, there is even a Horsemaning Championship scheduled for September 8 in Krakow.
