Florida nightclub under investigation after woman rode white horse into crowd

A scantily-clad woman rode a white horse into the Mokai Lounge nightclub in Miami Beach Fla. in a viral video shared on March 8 and 9 2018. Mokai Lounge was shut down by City Manager Jimmy Morales

"I$3 hope you get penalized severely for what you put that poor animal through", another user wrote. Aside from potentially breaching Miami Beach code, the act was viewed as potentially traumatic for the horse. This is inhumane and deserves serious attention ASAP'.

In 2015, she defended her action in a letter to the Financial Times. 'I made the foolish decision to get on it for a few minutes...
