Swedish eventer Pontus Hugosson is our kind of equestrian: namely, he’s not afraid to totally, 100% make a fool of himself on social media for the sake of keeping the rest of us entertained.
If the name Pontus Hugosson sounds slightly familiar to Horse Nation readers, it may be because we shared this gem for an “Oh Crap” Monday, in which the specific line, I believe, was “we have to admire the self-confidence in Hugosson that said ‘yes, I do want to share this on social media.'”
That seems to be the guiding mantra for this guy, whose Facebook page Pontus Hugosson is actually tagged “@pontushumor.” While Hugosson is still actively training and competing, he’s also carving out a few minutes of his day to create and publish some true equestrian cinematic wonders of our time.
This one, for example, made me actually LOL:

I don’t know what to say!? #dressagelife

THE HAT TIP, THOUGH.
After getting over my giggles, I found a few more true winners on Hugosson’s page that confirmed that yes, we all need to go follow this guy immediately.
Don’t take it personally!?

My favorite part of this one is the actual horse casually watching him roll by… I get the impression this is totally normal around Hugosson’s barn:
Superstar all weekend and then monday hits you like..
