This Video Of A Horse Experiencing Water For The First Time Is Simultaneously Touching And Amusing

Anna Paterek's horse, Magic, is afraid of water.

So when she tried to ride him into a river, he wasn't having any of it.

To calm him and show him that it was safe, Paterek dismounted, led Magic towards the water, and splashed around.

And then? Then, as Paterek says, "the best thing ever happened".

Turns out you can lead a horse to water. Hurrah!
