There are too many retired horses named Shamrock, either Shamrock Gold or Lady of Shamrock. So, getting statistics on this particular one is a little tough when you don’t know the exact horse. It doesn’t matter though. Shamrock is a retired horse who seems to have had a great career.

The thing is he was just minding his own business one day when Nick Bull wanted to take him for a ride. Of course, that sounds like an easy day for a retired horse. But, that’s the thing. Nick Bull had no idea what he was getting himself into.

It was supposed to be just a little walk around the property. You know, get some fresh air and stretch the legs. Horses need to do that every once in a while, especially if he’s a retired race horse. Could you imagine going from 40 mph to 0? How would that make you feel?

A Simple Ride


But, that’s not what the old horse had in mind. A few trots down the road and he started to feel like an old race horse again. Nick Bull wanted a nice ride. But, that wasn’t what he was going to get.

Shamrock Had A Different Idea


He wanted to stretch his legs and let it fly. It’s like it all came back to Shamrock and Nick Bull was just holding on for dear life. Listening to him yell, “Whoa!” as he’s hitting high speeds is hilarious. But then, it doesn’t end well at all for Nick. Although, I will say that no humans were killed during the filming of this video. Torture and injury are a completely different story.
