Alabama election day was eventually arrived, and Republican Senatorial candidate Roy Moore stimulated his grand entrance to the polls on horseback.
Moore — who’s been banned from a mall, accused of committing by 9 girls, and alleged to have initiated a sex encounter with a 12 -year-old girl when he was 32 — likely belief arriving on a horse would be a nice distraction. But Twitter users and horse aficionados recognized one glaring trouble: the man’s sort was tragically awful.
Footage of the ride demonstrates an peculiarly stiff Moore awkwardly mounted on his pony, Sassy.( The pony does not seem thrilled to be included in Moore’s narrative .)
Horse Twitter saddled up and came here for Moore, savagely criticizing his form and throwing some serious equestrian shade his way.
Obviously there are far bigger problems with Roy Moore but boy that human seems horrible on a horse.

Like I haven’t regularly journey a mare since childhood but, at minimum: reins gathered in one hand, lean forward, don’t stick your legs out like you’re on a goddamn carousel

He can’t even journey a gaited mare! That’s literally the equivalent of not being able to journey a tricycle WITH training wheels on it!

Based on the photo that I realized, it’s absolutely obvious that Roy Moore is a very poor horseback rider. I’m not a good rider, either, but I don’t participate in public stunts involving mares. Dishonor on him and on his spouse.

I don’t trust a horseman who calls his mare Sassy. My Arabian mare is called Naughty shqy@. Not impressed by #RoyMoore‘s horsemanship. I enjoy horses, I know ponies, I own ponies, I used to show ponies, and Judge Roy Moore is no gallant horseman. https :// t.co/ xsCD5z 5L1j

Someone even took time out of the working day to create a Sassy Twitter report with the bio: “I did not ask for this. I am just a pony. I had no choice in the matter.”
According to the report, Roy Moore’s mare does not want him to win such elections, either.
I DID NOT CHOOSE THIS LIFE.
PLEASE, IF HE WINS HE WILL RIDE ME INTO WASHINGTON AND I AM SCARED OF CARS.

Remember, everyone: In addition to the disgraceful harassment accusations, a be voting in favour of Moore is also a be voting in favour of horrible equestrian skills.
