Came across some really wacky horse laws from around the country that I would like to share. Sit down and have yourselves a good horse laugh.
Omega, New Mexico - Every woman must "be found to be wearing a corset" when riding a horse in public. A physician is required to inspect each female on horseback to determine whether or not she is complying with the law.
Bismark, North Dakota - "Every home within city limits must have a hitching post in the front yard."
Riverton, Wyoming - "No female shall ride a horse while attired in a bathing suit within the boundaries of Riverton, unless she be escorted by at least 2 officers of the law or unless she be armed with a club."
The law continues with this ammendment: "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds."
Fort Collins, Colorado - "It is unlawful for any male rider, within the limits of this community, to wink at any female rider with whom he is acquainted."
Wakefield, Rhode Island - It is a violation of the law for a married man to ride on Sunday.
Basalt, Nevada - Male riders are prohibited from eating onions between the hours of 7:00AM and 7:00PM.
West Union, Ohio - "No male person shall make remarks to or concerning, or cough, or whistle at, or do any other act to attract the attention of any woman riding a horse."
A 1913 Massachusetts law states that anyone who rides a horse recklessly or while drunk will be punished.
Abilene, Knasas - City Ordinance 349 declares: "Any person who shall in the city of Abilene shoot at a horse with any concealed or unconcealed bean snapper or like article, shall upon conviction, be fined."
