I might not know a ton about horses, but I never imagined they could be total drama queens.

Like this horse, who goes to great, Oscar-worthy lengths to avoid carrying people on his back.

Of course, horses can be irritable. There are plenty of ill-tempered horses who aren’t the best at for riding. But Jingang really takes the cake.

He doesn’t buck or bite when someone gets on his back. Oh no…

He just collapses and pretends that he’s died. Because, as everyone knows, you can’t ride a dead horse.

Owner Frasisco Zalasar made a video compilation of Jingang avoiding work with his dramatic deaths, and the video has amassed a lot of views.

I bet these views and likes spike on Monday mornings, when we can all identify with Jingang.

Horses like this one must be how the phrase “horsing around” came to be – they’re quite good at it!
