Do you remember the horse incident from the Olympics a few weeks ago? A poor, innocent horse named Saint Boy got spooked while doing some equestrian jumping event and simply refused to jump. Tough to win a jumping event when you don't jump. This created the infamous photo of the rider crying uncontrollably, realizing her dream of a gold medal had been flushed down the toilet. The rider aggressively spurred the horse while the trainer punched the poor fella to try and get him moving. The coach was kicked out of the olympics for those actions and has been trashed ever since.
TV star Kaley Cuoco saw the incident happen and took to social media to rip the Germans apart. Now this isn't just a celeb coming out of the woods to get her name out there like you see all the time. Kaley has long been a giant advocate for horses having married a horse trainer. She owns around 25 horses herself if I'm not mistaken. Her husband Karl Cook runs the Pomponio Ranch South in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
Cuoco went off on her Instagram story following incident and has now offered to buy the horse and give him a good life.
"I feel it's my duty and heart to comment on this disgrace. This is not Olympic show jumping. This is a disgusting, classless, abusive representation of our sport in so many ways. This team should be ashamed of themselves."
"You and your team did not do your country proud or this sport. You make us look bad. Shame on you and godspeed to any animal that comes in contact with you. Pure classless behavior right here. Disgusting on all levels. This is not our sport. This does not represent our sport. This rider and her 'trainer' are a disgrace. I'll buy that horse outright and show it the life it should have. Name your price."
I don't know about you, but I'm always going to lean team animal. Punching a horse? Get that absolutely out of my face, what's wrong with you. I know a lot of people were laying into the Germans for this but Kaley is serious about trying to buy this horse which is awesome. Hero ball.
Hope she buys the horse and while she's at it please run back season 2 of The Flight Attendant as soon as you can, thanks.
