Video: Amazing horse trots into the record books on its two back legs

This incredible horse has just won a Guinness World Records title by trotting 10 m on only two of his legs ... It's lucky no one was riding on his back!
 


The talented pony named “Desert” was awarded an official certificate for achieving the Fastest 10 m on hind legs by a horse in a record-setting 9.21 seconds.

The horse was not allowed to be forced, pushed or pulled at any time during the attempt.
 
This is the rule for every animal record that Guinness World Records follows because we don't want any creature to experience stress or pain.

Desert's owner Sheikha Maryam told us that Desert was sent to her as a gift one year ago - completely untrained and never ridden in its life.
 
She said: “He has a very unique personality and is very energetic, playful, gentle, kind and has a very big heart ... His trainer, Mr. Rui De Sousa, says that he is a very intelligent horse who is always willing to learn new exercises and improve them in his daily training."

"He can perform exercises that are difficult for many horses to do such as walk long distances on his hind legs unassisted and perform pirouettes on his hind legs as well."
