An ex-racehorse leads a man on a journey through life


It is possible to remove the horse from the race, but not the race from the horse.
When Nick Bull took retired racehorse Shamrock for what was supposed to be a “gentle trot,” he discovered this the hard way. Shamrock thought otherwise.

After Shamrock took him on what he dubbed “the ride of my life,” Nick uploaded his footage on YouTube. Shamrock may be heard saying “Whoa!” a lot, but it seems like he’s having fun running! Although Nick has rode Shamrock before, never at the pace seen here. He asserts, “On this day, he forgot he was retired, or that I’m not that experienced a rider…” It’s OK to laugh—Shamrock and Nick are doing well!
