Video: Nightclub closed after woman rides horse onto dance floor

A nightclub in Florida has had its license revoked after a woman was filmed riding a horse onto the crowded dance floor last week.

Miami Beach city manager Jimmy Morales said he had revoked Mokai Lounge’s business licence after the stunt.

“I was disgusted and offended that any legitimate businessperson would think this was an appropriate action to take,” he added.

The horse is filmed as it is ridden onto a packed dance floor. Visibly distressed, it unseats its rider in an attempt to get away from the crowds.

It is reported that police and enforcement officers have launched an investigation after receiving a series of complaints following the incident on Thursday last week.

No injuries to either humans or animals were reported.

In a statement last Friday, the City of Miami Beach said it was “made aware of an incident involving possible animal cruelty and a hazard to public safety”.

The horse was subsequently located and checked over by animals experts before being deemed “healthy”.
