You’ve Got to See This Horse Dancing to Billy Ray Cyrus’ ‘Achy Breaky Heart’
We echo Billy Ray Cyrus when we say that this is the best thing ever. The '90s hitmaker's most famous work of art, "Achy Breaky Heart," has always been a line-dancing favorite, but it's usually humans doing the foot-stompin'. Not at a recent rodeo, however.
Cyrus shared this "best thing ever" via Facebook, and wven before pressing play on the video, you'll notice a big (hairy) line dancer is leading the pack. A beautiful dark horse is at the center of a ring of several line dancers, but can he keep up with their moves?
Oh yeah. When Cyrus' 1992 smash hit begins, the dancers behind the horse start to pump their legs to the beat. It doesn't take long for Mr. Ed to feel the groove. A few kicks here and a few turns there and the dancers and the horse are suddenly in sync, dancing along to their achy, breaky hearts' content.
Surprisingly, the horse doesn't miss a beat — it even seems his tail is shaking to the tune! The crowd's excitement for the line dancing is evident, as they laugh and clap along with the dancers while the horse spins around. The line dancers even dressed the part, wearing jeans, white shirts and black cowboy hats, while the woman riding the horse opted for a tan hat and her long hair back in a ponytail.
At the end of the video, the crowd screams and cheer for the entertaining dance. Watch the entire hilariously awesome routine of "Achy Breaky Heart" in the video above.
