If you’re anything like me, chances are you’ve spent most of your riding time wearing appropriate barn clothes and boots. OK, so there was that time I was wearing shorts and sandals, but that’s another story. I have never, though, dressed up in a dinosaur costume and gone horseback riding. Michael Gascon, however, has.

Gascon, owner of Gascon Horsemanship, dressed up as T-Rex and filmed himself riding Tito, a 9-year-old Paso Fino. The video has more than 2.1 million views. Watch it (below) and add a few numbers to that.

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages step right up. It is my profound pleasure to announce to you we have discovered the ninth wonder of the world! For your sheer entertainment, amusement and amazement, I present to you Jurassic Paso Park!

Fox 8 Live reports that this isn’t the first time the stallion has appeared on camera; he once played alongside Luke Perry in the film A Fine Step, with Gascon as Perry’s stunt double. “He’s the most beautiful Paso I’ve ever seen,” Gascon told Fox 8 Live. “And he’s just a character.” We’d add that he’s pretty brave, too. Not every horse would tolerate a giant T-Rex on their back.

“Jurassic Paso Park,” as Gascon has dubbed the video, showcases how well-trained Tito is, and yes, it is pretty funny too.
