When Nick Bull took Shamrock, his retired racehorse, for a leisurely trot through the countryside, he never thought he would become an internet sensation.
Instead of the leisurely trot that Nick was expecting, Shamrock took him on a run for his money.
While Shamrock was ready to relive his glory days, his passenger was not looking forward to the adventure at all. In fact, Nick says in his YouTube posting that he doesn’t have the experience as a rider for this type of situation. So, getting the horse to stop was simply not in the cards for Nick.
Instead, he spends the entire ride screaming at the horse to stop and ultimately fails to keep his seat.
Warning: this video contains strong language.
When Nick posted the video, chances are he didn’t think it would ever become this popular. In just 10 days, over 2.4 million people have watched the video. Hopefully, this won’t shy Nick away from horses altogether. It would be a shame if he and Shamrock didn’t have any more adventures together.
