If you’re in need of a good laugh, look no further than this ridiculous video of two heavy riders attempting to cross a river on a single horse. The poor equine, clearly struggling under the weight of its passengers and western tack, finally had enough and bucked its riders off, sending them tumbling into the water. And let’s just say, they ended up a lot wetter and dirtier than they would have if they had just tried to cross the river themselves.
But let’s not overlook the real issue here: the safety and well-being of the horse. As many commenters have pointed out, it’s common knowledge that a horse can only carry a certain amount of weight before it becomes uncomfortable and potentially dangerous for both the horse and its riders. It’s a shame that the owners of this poor horse didn’t care enough to ensure that it wasn’t being overburdened.
And let’s not forget about the man who was leading the riders. As one commenter astutely pointed out, he was likely the one responsible for suggesting that two overweight people ride a single horse, and he should have known better. It’s clear from the horse’s body language in the video that it was uncomfortable and struggling, and any responsible horse owner or rider would have recognized that and taken appropriate action.
But even with all of these serious concerns, it’s hard not to laugh at the absurdity of the situation. Watching the horse buck its riders off and splash around in the water is pure comedic gold, and it’s no wonder that so many commenters found the whole thing to be hilarious.
In the end, we can only hope that the owners of this poor horse learned their lesson and won’t subject their animals to this kind of mistreatment in the future. And as for the riders? Well, maybe they should stick to crossing rivers on foot from now on.
