A Dallas Cowboys fan celebrated the team’s win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday with a horseback ride through a Walmart.
The man was wearing a Dak Prescott sweater, and the horse’s mane and tail were painted blue to make the celebration even more bombastic. Video on social media showed the man and his horse in the checkout lane.

Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones was asked about the incident in an interview with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas earlier this week, saying he has previously been on a horse indoors.
“I’ve literally been on a horse before and it’s a tricky business because if that horse starts slipping, sliding and kicking, it’s a mess,” he said.
Cooper Rush started for Prescott, who was off duty with a right thumb fracture he sustained in the week 1 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
JERRY JONES OF COWBOYS ENTERTAINT IDEA COOPER CAN GET RUSH QB CONTROVERS IF HE PLAYS GOOD
Rush helped the Cowboys drift off the field to set up the winning Brett Maher field goal. Maher nailed the kick from 50 yards to give Rush his second win as starter, 20-17.
“He exceeded my expectations. He did,” Jones said of Rush after the game. “No reason why he couldn’t, but he exceeded my expectations. I thought his passing was extraordinary.”
Rush went 19-for-31 with 235 passing yards and a touchdown pass to Noah Brown in the first quarter. Brown finished with five catches for 91 yards. Ceedee Lamb added seven catches for 75 yards.

If Rush leads the Cowboys to a second win over the New York Giants on Monday night this season, the fan may need to look for a new jersey.
