Well-trained horse performs hilarious 'choreography' to Billy Ray Cyrus classic

A horse is a horse, of course... except when she's a line dancer. A beautiful gray mare dances the electric slide so well to "Achy Breaky Heart" that Billy Ray Cyrus himself posted a video of her performance to his Facebook page in April 2015, labeling it the "Best thing ever!"
In the video below, the animal takes the center position in a group line dance performed during an entertainment segment of an unidentified rodeo. She begins right on cue, stepping and twirling with the other dancers in perfect time. The audience is delighted to see her smooth moves, cheering and clapping to the beat.

Nothing on the Internet comes without some debate these days. Some commenters on Facebook voiced that they felt the horse looked pissed off during the show, whereas others thought the video only proved just how smart horses actually are. 
Needless to say, the video is a testament to patience, training and partnership to see the mare move with her backward-facing ears listening to her partner and tail twitching in concentration and balance. Clearly, many hours were spent learning the steps to the electric slide, but they look like they're having so much fun performing it that one might think they're just horsing around!
