Top Twenty Reasons To Ride A Horse

Top Twenty Reasons to Ride a Horse, as opposed to a dinosaur, flying saucer, or tap dancing polar bear.

1. Hooves make that awesome clip-clopping sound.

2. Stepping on your enemies’ toes becomes far more effective with the additional 500kg.

3. Horses are known to be fluffy.

4. Instant unicorn - just add horn.

5. No more motion sickness.

6. Distance between horse and ground aids in the avoidance of stubbed toes.

7. You can pretend to be a knight, but only if you have a white horse.

8. Jods make your butt look good.

9. Horses come with built in lawn mowers and fertilizers.

10. Excuse to buy a ridiculous amount of industrial size bubble wrap.

11. Free hugs.

12. Horses are more comfortable than camels.

13. Horses are also more comfortable than cows, elephants, ostriches, and those weird old fashioned bicycles.

14. According to science, no horse has ever experienced a flat tire.

15. Petrol is rapidly becoming more expensive than horse food.

16. When you fart, you have someone to blame it on.

17. When you blame your fart on a horse, they’re unlikely to get angry and beat you up.

18. If your horse does get angry about being blamed for your fart, he’ll forgive you for the cost of one juicy carrot.

19. Unlike their riders, horses don’t tend to be stinky, unless farted on.

20. A horse will almost never succumb to toilet humour.
