The old idiom about not being able to lead a horse to water looks to be true in the first half of this video, with Anna Paterek's steed, Magic, looking very tentative as she tries to guide him into a stream.

After several failed attempts he eventually sticks a hoof in, and quickly finds that he really rather enjoys the sensation.

Magic then starts furiously pawing at the surface, showering his owner who is in fits of hysterics.

Now accustomed to the river he frolics about for the rest of the video, as Paterek declares it "the best thing that ever happened".

The horse does seem to like the water, but not as much as these goats enjoy balancing on a wobbly metal sheet.
