It’s no secret that horseback riding is a passion for many in this world. But for a cat in Devon, England, it’s just another way to hang with his best friend!

Horse trainer Emma Massingale knows that love knows no boundaries. Certainly not when it comes to her pony Comet and her cat Louis, as they snuggle each other regularly.

Louis also takes a jaunt around the grounds on Comet, sitting confidently and assuredly as his buddy moseys around Massingale’s property.

It’s almost like a picture out of a movie…a star-crossed pair walking through a magical forest with bridges and streams as they silently commune with each other.

Massingale says that Louis initially started riding with her, at the tap of her leg. Now, however, when she simply pats Comet’s back, Louis hops up, content to be by himself with his friend, and he’s always ready to rally.

Except when it’s raining. He’s not as fond of riding in the rain, Massingale says, but he enjoys snuggling together anytime. When he’s finished with his sightseeing, he just jumps off Comet until the next time he fancies a ride.
