Horses are famously graceful. This is true both when they’re casually trotting around or when they’re in a show. They also love music, and when they hear a good beat starting, they can’t help but sway along.
That was the case for this horse named Cheeky.
Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” was a mega-hit in the pop charts back in 2014. Whenever anyone heard this song, they couldn’t help but tap their toes and sway along. The song was so catchy that even this horse can’t resist breaking out in dance when they hear it.
Emma is a horse trainer from the UK, and she loves hanging out with her horse Cheeky — this includes having dance parties in the stable.
Emma playfully dances around as “All About That Bass” plays in the background.
She bops up and down as a camera films her dancing near Cheeky. It’s clear that the beautiful horse is interested in what Emma is doing, he extends his neck out toward her.
After a few seconds in the spotlight with her dance moves, Emma turns her attention to Cheeky. She looks at the horse and says “back to you!” It’s clear that this is his cue to start letting loose himself, and what happens next is hilarious.
When Emma cues Cheeky to start dancing, he bobs his head up and down.
Emma and her friend who is filming can’t help but crack up laughing as the majestic horse nods his head in such a silly fashion. It truly was like he was feeling the beat of the song!
Does Cheeky just like this Meghan Trainor song, or is it all music?
According to Horse Lovers Math, a study was done by researchers at Hartpury College that examined horse’s behavior when different genres of music were played.
Apparently, horses liked all music but tended to prefer classical and country music a bit more. Rock was their least favorite genre.
Equus Magazine says that horses bob their heads for many reasons; anxiety, keeping flies away, or even signaling an injury. Cheeky, however, seems to really and truly enjoy “dancing” around with his owner. The head bobs are in such sync with the music!
Clearly, Cheeky is a horse who enjoys both music and his favorite human. He seems to be having a wonderful time in his video.
