Louis and Comet enjoy spending time together, in fact they’re practically inseparable. Owner, Emma Massingale, a professional horse trainer, said she often catches the pair nuzzling particularly after they’ve been out on a ride.
You heard right, “after they’ve been out on a ride”, you see Louis the Siamese cat often rides Comet the pony near their home in Holsworthy, North Devon (UK). Avid trail riders, the two seem to genuinely enjoy wandering the local trails.
Emma has owned Comet, a 5-year-old Connemara for 3 years and 6-year-old Louis for nearly a year. She taught Louis to jump on Comet’s back when she was riding by tapping her leg. Louis caught on quickly and now willingly mounts Comet with just a few taps for encouragement. The duo will often ride in the arena but their true passion is trail riding.
“People often do a double take when they see Louis out but lots don’t notice him until he meows,” said Emma.
