White Horse

Bringing new meaning to the phrase “horsing around.”

At first glance it looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

A man decided to bring his horse into the house in the middle of a party. He’s got a small child on the horse with him, and in the few seconds we glimpse, nothing seems to go horrifically wrong. It needs to be seen to be believed.

It may be impressive to the average viewer, but for horse riders, there’s an extra level of awe to behold with the Andalusian’s footwork and its partnership with the rider.

“What he is doing is called a Piaffe,” redditor SpiritFairy wrote. “It is a very difficult, upper level dressage move the requires immense strength and focus on the horse’s part, and he’s performing it beautifully. The best part about this is the rider is controlling that beautiful Piaffe, with one hand, and a child on his lap. That is not easy.”

We now have a new meaning for the phrase “horsing around.” (Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves.)
