Picture Of The Day: Get Off Me!
Somewhere PETA members are worshiping the sight of such an image. A sight which clearly shows that the horse has had enough of that damn human on his back, and so he did the only thing he felt he could do; dislodge her.
It seems like a rather brutal fall for a sport (equestrian) which is often perceived as graceful and harmless. Fortunately, her face plant resulted in a mouth full of grass, and not asphalt. So needless to say, this could have been much worse.
So should we award this victory to the horse and animal lovers everywhere? That seems like a fair decision. And if PETA’s “Tame your Tiger” advertisements get shot down, this picture would look great on a billboard with their name beside it.
