A woman has learnt a valuable lesson about karma after she was kicked by a horse that she hit with a spade.
A Facebook video posted over the weekend (see below) shows the woman getting kicked after she hit a wild horse with a plastic shovel.
The hungry horse was sniffing out some food that she had left on the beach.
But rather than just moving the food out of the way, the woman thought that hitting the horse would encourage it to move along.
It didn’t work.
Instead, the horse kicked the woman, and she fell onto the sand.
As the woman gets back up to her feet, another horse, accompanied by its foal, joins the ‘party’.
The incident happened on Assateague Island National Seashore – an idyllic place where wild horses roam free.
As the woman stikes the horse, someone can be heard to shout “watch out” as the horses prepares itself to unleash some instant karma.
The wild horses of Assateague Island National Seashore are protected, and U.S. Park officials advise visitors to stay away from them.
It should not take a genius to work out that if you leave food lying around in a nature reserve, then the residents of the area are going to, quite rightly, find out what you have brought into their home.
