Chinese Farm Girl Rides Cows Around Town Because Horses Are Expensive

A farm girl and equestrian in Jiangsu province, China has gone viral after she was spotted riding her family’s cow on the street because a horse was too expensive.

The woman, identified as Xue, said that she really loves riding horses, but her family could not afford one as it costs around 10,000 yuan ($1,440), according to Shanghaiist.


She was able to overcome this financial obstacle in the meantime and decided to train their family’s three cows like horses.

Xue described the cows as being fast animals and practices riding on them every day by placing weight bags on their backs so that they can get used to her weight.
