  • Terrified horse throws bikini-clad rider off its back in the middle of a Miami Beach nightclub

The horse then dips, the woman falls off and the horse bucks and walks off. People in the video are heard gasping and then cheering.

A FURIOUS horse threw a scantily-clad dancer off its back as she attempted to ride it around the dance floor of a nightclub.

The video shows a man struggling to control the horse as the crowd parts to give it space. Meanwhile, animal activists and people who generally think having wildlife in the club is a no-go have been tearing Mokai Lounge a new one on Facebook.

The owners of the Moaki Lounge in South Beach had their license revoked on Friday after video of the horse entering the crowded nightclub became viral on social media, raising concerns about safety hazards and animal cruelty.

'I will also be sending this disturbing video to local news stations in hopes this nightclub can be penalized for the abuse of a poor and helpless animal.

The club will face a criminal animal cruelty investigation, Miami Beach Police Chief Daniel Oates told reporters. "The horse has been inspected and deemed to be healthy and safe".


'We are very concerned over the allegations.

It only took the investigation a few hours to determine the severity of the incident and the club had it's license revoked.

It's not clear whether having a live horse in a nightclub would violate Miami Beach code, but it's common sense that horses are easily spooked by loud noises and unfamiliar settings. This is inhumane and deserves serious attention ASAP'.

"You guys are absolutely disgusting allowing animal cruelty inside your club", one user posted.

The owner of the horse and woman on the horse's back have yet to be identified.

In 2015, she defended her action in a letter to the Financial Times.
