This is the moment a man rides his horse into a plush chill-out cafe in Borat’s homeland of Kazakhstan.
The incident was filmed by a cafe client in the south-eastern Kazakh city of Tekel, and was later shared on social media.
In the video, the unnamed 32-year-old man is seen leaving the main hall and trying to get through the doorway to join at least two other riders outside the venue.
Eyewitnesses reported the incident to the local authorities as soon as the man left the cafe with the other riders.
Reports said the police managed to track him down and have referred the intruding horse rider to a local court.
He had been detained for five days and was found guilty of petty hooliganism, according to local media.
It is unclear what made him enter the venue on horseback.
Netizen ‘Kapelka’ said: “When he will be released, he will be so damn proud of getting a ‘sentence’ and will tell everyone around him how much of a hero he is.”
‘German’ commented: “I do not think this man has ever read any classics. Musketeers and cowboys would always leave their horses outside and would never dream of riding them inside.”
