The horse looks uncomfortable with the arrangement.

I was a little concerned until I noticed the skates.

I saw the headline, and @Papasan’s comment, before I watched the video and figured this was going to be some joke (or, hopefully a joke) based on Caligula.

This is not BoingBoing’s usual definition of a “gentleman”.

I have a feeling that even the use of the skates would do anything for the teeny horsey’s dignity. :slight_smile:

If the horse was running for senator, then the horse would have been riding the gentleman.

I believe it is taking exception to being ridden in this manner.

Dammit, the fellow’s not even wearing neckwear. If that alone does not class him with porch burglars nothing does.

I was thinking yesterday that I had not seen a gentle person riding a horse

My D&D party recently acquired ponies, which has led to a lot of jokes as our druid is an 8-foot tall Firbolg. Now we know how he can ride his pony more or less safely.

Get off the dog, gentleman.

The last word made me laugh! But I agree.
