In An Impassioned Instagram Story, Kaley Cuoco Offered To Buy A Horse After It Was Punched During The Olympic Games
Published in Aug 2021 / Updated in Sep 2021
Kaley Cuoco, one of the most famous horse-lovers in the world, is willing to buy the horse that got punched during the Olympics and “show it the life it should have.” The animal was punched during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Kim Raisner, the coach of the German pentathlon team, was recorded hitting the horse, which is named Saint Boy. She was disqualified from the global sporting event over the incident.
Kim was also heard telling the horse’s rider, Annika Schleu, to “really hit it.” The horse was a huge frustration for the rider. Annika could not control the horse during the women’s pentathlon, which probably cost her a medal during the global event.
Kaley Cuoco Has Loved Horses Since She Was Young
Kaley is a huge fan of horses, and she has ridden them since she was 15. That is why The Flight Attendant star was touched deeply by this story.
Kaley currently owns lots of horses. She was a star in the hit comedy show, The Big Bang Theory, and after it ended, she confessed: “I’m an equestrian. I love horses.”
She also expressed her wish to challenge herself more in this field.
Kaley Felt She Had To Say Something After The Incident
When commenting on the event, Kaley shared images from the footage and added that she felt it was her “duty and heart to comment” on the “disgrace” witnessed.
As far as she was concerned, this was not an Olympic show, but a “classless abusive representation” of the sport on many levels:
“This team should be ashamed of themselves.”
She directly addressed the horse’s rider, Annika, and said that she and her team did not make her country proud of the sport.
Kaley said she should be ashamed for making equestrians look bad and went on to say that she wished luck to any animal that crosses paths with her.
The popular actress claimed that the incident was “disgusting on all levels.” She insisted that this is not what the sport is about and that this behavior is not a good representation of this sport.
As far as Kaley is concerned, the rider and the trainer are a disgrace.
Then she offered to buy the horse “outright” to “show it the life it should have.” “Name your price,” she added.
Kaley Insisted She Was Not Kidding
Afterward, she shared a series of news coverage of the comments she had made and said, “I wasn’t kidding.”
We can only hope that Kaley and the unfortunate horse will end up together. Saint Boy could certainly use the care and attention of a loving and considerate owner.
