Images of a man casually trotting along on his horse in the middle of Wuhan’s crowded Xiongchu Avenue have been making the rounds online.
The rider, a member of the Wuhan Jockey Club, explained to reporters that he used to drive to work, but because of terrible traffic congestion, was late almost every day.
One day, he opted to abandon his car and hop on his horse instead, and it’s become his main mode of transportation to and from the office ever since.
Pictures of the equestrian and his loyal steed quickly went viral. Web users laughed at, yet silently coveted the man’s eco-friendly and efficient means of traveling.
“Have you gotten your ‘BMW’ registered yet?” one netizen joked, referring to the Chinese name of the brand which translates directly to “Precious Horse”.
