Racehorse? Not Anymore. This Horse Wants to Be an Eventer

Posted by Paige Cerulli

Someone doesn't want to be a racehorse anymore. The fields are calling his name, and this Thoroughbred wants to be an eventer. 

Have you ever had a really bad day? You know the kind, where you just don't feel like going to work or doing something that you normally enjoy? The kind where you'd rather lie in bed all day long? Well, that's the kind of day this racehorse was having. In fact, he decided that he wants to be an eventer instead.

This racehorse decided he's had enough of running circles around a track, and is meant to gallop through wide-open grass fields, instead. So, he took off without his jockey and decided to make his dream of becoming an eventer a reality. It just so happens that he found the golf course next to the racecourse and decided to go for a jaunt.

Catching a runaway racehorse is no easy task when you're on foot - and being on horseback doesn't make it that much simpler, either. These people did the best that they could, but they were no match as this racehorse happily galloped around them, creating some lovely divots that golfers probably won't be too thrilled about.

Sometimes horses need a career change, and they let us know. They may become sour about their job, or suddenly suffer a decline in their performance. Some disciplines just suit some horses better than they suit others. Trying out something a bit different may reveal a horse's true talents.

 

So, hopefully this racehorse gets a chance to be an eventer one day - he certainly seems like he'd enjoy galloping across some more fields!
