10 Rediculous Photos Of Rodeo Queens Riding Stick Horses Because Of A Horse Herpes Outbreak (Gallery)

With a serious case of equine herpes spreading throughout Utah, contestants at the Davis County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse Junior Queen Contest were forced to ride stick horses, rather than real horses, during last night’s competition.  If that sounds stupid to you, it probably has something to do with the fact that it is stupid.  Very stupid!

But it isn’t all bad, according to one contestant who claims that, “it will give you experience… if you happen to have a problem like this later in life, you already have the experience of riding a stick horse.”

I still can’t think of one instance where having the experience of riding a stick horse will be beneficial.
