Horses tend to be law-abiding creatures. Very few end up in jail or being fined.
The same, however, cannot be said for their human counterparts. Humans, in fact, do some monumentally stupid things – and just occasionally they involve horses.
In fact, one unfortunate American woman even made the finals of the 2000 Darwin Awards for her dealings with a horse. The famous awards are given posthumously to people whose passing might, uncharitably, be considered to be improving the world’s gene pool.
The woman in question struck on the less than bright idea of using her body as a hitching post while trying to bridle a green horse. Suffice to say, she won’t be making the same mistake twice.
However, a little bit of research reveals that people don’t just do dumb things with horses, they also make dumb laws to cover them.
