If you’re looking to become Public Enemy #1 in the eyes of PETA then a pretty good place to start is by using an actual living horse to pull you around a flooded field on a surfboard.
Or, if you’re just looking to incur the wrath of nature by pissing off a majestic beast then, again, you could hook up a harness and make some horse with a broken spirit cart your ass around a flooded field.
I think I’d actually have been pissed off by this video if the guy didn’t bust ass at the end, that sort of made it all okay in my mind. It’s the give and take of the Universe. You annoy the shit out of an animal just minding his own business and you get served up a piping hot mouthful of mud.
But all that said, I think it’d be too hypocritical of me to deny the fact that I’d be at least somewhat interested in trying this. Like, if you could convince me that this horse LOVED and LIVED to cart drunk guys around in fields on surfboards, then I’d probably be all for it. Some animals are bred for certain tasks and love to complete those tasks, so maybe it’s pull-surfing for this horse and I’ll get on board with the whole shebang.
Tip of the hat to The Inertia for finding and sharing this video.
