This had to be the best way to horse around.
Who doesn’t just break in to dance when they hear a catchy tune? Even animals react to music. It’s really a shame that most adults refuse to dance unless they’ve had a drink or two.
Melanie Kessler’s two daughters took advantage of a great day and danced under the golden sun with a horse. And the horse didn’t just stand by and watch either.
This was taken at the San Antonio Rose Palace which is a multi-purpose arena located in Leon Springs, San Antonio, Texas. Now it’s a given that the two girls would dance but check out the horse!
The song is Silento‘s “Watch me (whip/nae nae)“. Fitting track for this trio. And the horse has the timing down! He bops his head along to the beat while the girls try to imitate the song’s dance moves.
That’s not even the best part.
“The horse doesn’t do it all day and night long. Only when that song plays and the girls dance with her. I’ve never seen a horse do it and I for sure don’t know how to dance. The girls got her to do it and no she is not scared of kids because my daughter in the pink jumped up on her and rode her off right after the video.”
It’s the song! Watch him neigh neigh!
The horse tentatively moves for a bit but as soon as she gets in her groove, she rocks her head and hooves from side to side making sure she’s maintaining her rhythm with the girls.
The sisters dance really well too. For girls their age, they’ve got awesome moves. Plus it’s refreshing to see kids out in the sun dancing and having fun with others. In this case, a horse. Who needs gadgets when you’ve got a groovy horse?
Did you know that horses love music?
Check out what Equine Wellness Magazine says about it,
“I’ve discovered that horses respond best to music with short melodies and strong rhythmic patterns. If you’re looking for a style that fits this criteria, classical or country played at a low volume will have a positive effect and help calm horses while they’re resting, eating and being groomed in the barn. It’s not so much the style of music, but its frequency and volume that are most important.”
Horses are creatures that get easily agitated or stressed. You could say that they are high maintenance when it comes to owning one. All the feeding and grooming are nothing if the horse is constantly stressed. Guess they’re not so far from humans, huh?
Lots of horses are trained for shows.
It’s an equestrian sport called Dressage where a rider and his horse perform a routine to music. Horses move fluidly, in harmony with its rider and the music being played.
Melanie’s horse here doesn’t care about the formalities though. It’s freestyle for this horse! And it doesn’t seem like she was stressed either. Remember that the daughter in pink got on the horse and rode around a bit. It needed a release and dancing was the way to go!
