Cheers to comedian Josh Pray, who has done more for horseback riding in five minutes than we’ve accomplished all year.
The vast majority of first-ride videos, or post-first-ride reactions like this video, follow a typical arc of action: the novice rider operating under the impression that it’s probably not that hard, the novice rider realizing that yes, in fact, not only is it actually as hard as equestrians say it is, but it’s also physically demanding, and the realization that they won’t be able to walk the next day.
It’s a rare video that hits all of these points while making us laugh — not AT the individual, but WITH them — and encouraging everyone to go out and try riding for themselves. Josh Pray, you’ve knocked it out of the park with this one, making all of your viewers laugh while also igniting that spark of curiosity to go out and try.
Disclaimer: video contains a few NSFW moments.
