People, we need to talk about this. We need to talk about the rank unfairness of the horses in the horse dancing getting bullshit tiny medals, while their humans get the proper ones.
Obviously, OBVIOUSLY, the horse is the most important part of horse dancing. Just look at this human desperately trying to steal the spotlight.
Just look at all this complicated dancing and tell me that the real winner here isn't the horse. That rider is just along, quite literally, for the ride.
This horse, which danced to the Grammy Award–winning 1999 hit "Smooth" by Santana featuring Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty from the multi-platinum album Supernatural, deserves its own damn medal.
But no. Look at the "medal" they give the horse. It's not a medal, it's a joke. It's basically a goddamn sticker.
This is the award you give to a 4-year-old who did a particularly good drawing of a house in crayon, not an Olympic champion.
And this horse knows. This horse is clearly sad at the lack of a really good medal. You can't tell me this horse isn't really sad about the fact that he doesn't get a proper medal and instead has to hang out with this nonsense on the side of his head.
Especially when his human is holding her actual medal and smiling so happily, despite the horse clearly doing all the actual work of horse dancing.
This is what should happen. An appropriate medal. Their own damn medal.
