D.he US actress Kaley Cuoco (32, “The Big Bang Theory”), a passionate rider, offered to buy the horse Saint Boy after the Olympic scandal involving modern pentathlete Annika Schleu and trainer Kim Raisner.
It is her duty and affair of the heart to comment on this “disgusting” incident, Cuoco wrote on Friday (local time) Instagram stories. The rider and her trainer should be ashamed. They are a disgrace to equestrianism. “I would buy this horse right now and offer it a life that it should have. Name your price, ”wrote the actress.
Cuoco also posted photos of Schleu from Berlin on the horse Saint Boy in the Olympic competition. The horse drawn from Schleu refused to take part in the course in Tokyo, and at the request of trainer Raisner, the rider used the whip to drive the horse. Raisner was banned from the games for allegedly punching the horse. Both had to accept a lot of criticism and hateful comments on social networks after the scenes.
Schleu had defended himself against the harsh accusations several times. “I didn’t treat the horse extremely harshly. I had a crop with me that was checked beforehand. Just like the spurs. I am really not aware of any animal cruelty, ”the 31-year-old recently told the weekly newspaper Die Zeit.
The pentathlon world federation recently published pictures of Saint Boy and assured them that the horse would be fine after its return to the owners in the Japanese prefecture of Shiga. “He is in good health, even if exhausted from the competition,” it said.
Cuoco, who is married to the rider and horse trainer Karl Cook, owns several horses. In the award-winning sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” she played the waitress and actress Penny, who is friends with a clique of weird scientists.
