I saw a great post the other day that featured a horse in a Christmas costume with the caption, “This is why I buck you off.”

Equestrians love to dress their horses up during the holidays, but, let’s be honest, horses just aren’t having it. These costumes are all cute, and it’s great to be festive, but it’s even greater coming up with funny captions for these pictures.

After you finish reading the article, let me know what your best captions are.
