Skeleton Rides Horse for Training

Rebecca got creative in training a horse named Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi is a nine-year-old Morgan mare, and Rebecca is desensitizing her and giving her a feel of what it's like to be controlled by a human rider. But instead of a human, she placed a lightweight plastic skeleton on her back! Rebecca is calling out orders and controlling the skeleton's movements with ropes. What could possibly go wrong? Well, the same thing that could go wrong with an inexperienced rider... the horse proved to be a little more powerful than the skeleton, and yes, there were definitely bones broken. It's a good thing they were the skeleton's bones! (via Laughing Squid)
