Actress Kaley Cuoco, 35, offered to buy the horse that was punched after it refused to cooperate during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Last week, Kim Raisner, the coach of Germany’s modern pentathlon team, was disqualified from the Olympics after a video clip emerged of her hitting the horse.
In the footage, Raisner can be heard telling the rider, Annika Schleu, to “really hit it.”
Annika, a fan favorite to win the gold, can be seen crying and screaming in frustration with the horse named Saint Boy. after it refused to cooperate.
The Big Bang Theory actress herself has been riding since she was 15 — and owns a ton of horses.
“I’m an equestrian,” Kaley said. “I love horses. I’d actually really like to challenge myself a little bit more in that area.”
In a passionate Instagram story post, Kaley shared a series of images from the upsetting incident.
“I feel it’s my duty and heart to comment on this disgrace,” the actress wrote in the one of her Instagram story posts. “This is not Olympic show jumping.”
“This is a disgusting classless abusive representation of our sport in so many ways,” Kaley continued. “This team should be ashamed of themselves.”
“You and your team did not do your country proud or this sport,” Kaley wrote, referencing to the olympian, Annika. “You make us look bad. Shame on you and Godspeed to any animal that comes in contact with you.”
“Disgusting on all levels,” she continued. “This is not our sport. This does not represent our sport. This rider and her ‘trainer’ are a disgrace.”
“I’ll buy that horse outright and show it the life it should have,” Kaley wrote. “Name your price.”
Kaley’s social media post went viral, and in response to the news reports, the actress then post another series of stories wherein she made it clear that she would want to have Saint Boy.
“I wasn’t kidding,” Kaley wrote.
