Even Horses Are Snowflakes These Days

After complaining to authorities about the oppressive environment and how demanding participating in the Olympics has become, I assume, a German horse has had his coach suspended for horse-o-phobic behavior.

A German coach at the Tokyo Olympics was suspended Saturday after being filmed hitting an uncooperative horse during the women’s modern pentathlon competition.

TV footage showed Kim Raisner leaning over a fence to strike the horse Saint Boy, which refused to jump the fences in the show jumping round on Friday. That cost German athlete Annika Schleu a chance of winning the gold medal.
