Roy Moore can’t ride a horse for his life, and everyone noticed

Alabama election day has finally arrived, and Republican Senatorial candidate Roy Moore made his grand entrance to the polls on horseback. 

Moore — who’s been banned from a mall, accused of sexual misconduct by 9 women, and alleged to have initiated a sexual encounter with a 12-year-old girl when he was 32 — probably thought arriving on a horse would be a nice distraction. But Twitter users and horse aficionados saw one glaring problem: the man’s form was tragically terrible. 

Footage of the ride shows an oddly stiff Moore awkwardly mounted on his horse, Sassy. (The horse does not seem thrilled to be included in Moore’s narrative.)

Horse Twitter saddled up and came for Moore, brutally criticizing his form and throwing some serious equestrian shade his way.

Obviously there are far bigger problems with Roy Moore but boy that man looks terrible on a horse.

Like I haven’t regularly ridden a horse 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 ride a gaited horse! That’s literally the equivalent of not being able to ride a tricycle WITH training wheels on it!

WHAT THE FUCK MY DUDE, WHY MAKE A DRAMATIC HORSE-RELATED EXIT IF YOU’VE APPARENTLY NEVER SAT ON A HORSE BEFORE IN YOUR LIFE pic.twitter.com/bVrIJxiN0z

Based on the photo that I saw, 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 horses. Shame on him and on his spouse.

I don’t trust a horseman who calls his mare Sassy. My Arabian mare is called Naughty شقية . Not impressed by #RoyMoore‘s horsemanship. I love horses, I know horses, I own horses, I used to show horses, and Judge Roy Moore is no gallant horseman. https://t.co/xsCD5z5L1j

Someone even took time out of their day to create a Sassy Twitter account with the bio: “I did not ask for this. I am just a horse. I had no choice in the matter.”

According to the account, Roy Moore’s horse does not want him to win the election, 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 allegations, a vote for Moore is also a vote for terrible equestrian skills.
