When you walk the streets of New Orleans during their festivities, expect it to be lively, especially at night. The folks have their unique way of partying, as expected from the land of jazz, one of the most unique music genres in the world.

In every corner of the street, you’d find musicians playing jazz music while the rest of the people gather to dance under the shining streetlights. This beautiful city is quite a spectacle, especially to people who haven’t been to New Orleans before.

During big celebrations, it is the police’s job to make sure that the citizens are safe and sound. In New Orleans, the patrolling police would ride on their horses and roam around the street. Moreover, there is an interesting feature about these horses – they can dance!

While these horses help keep the city safe, sometimes they couldn’t help but bust a move or two

With the sound of sax and trombones in every corner, anyone would be tempted to dance.

Apparently, a horse was lured. Luckily, one of the passers-by was able to film a hilarious moment of a horse joining the party. The horse was suddenly tap dancing, clip-clopping its big hooves on the concrete.

Furthermore, he spun around at one point and impressively performed a moonwalk. It’s expected that with an atmosphere like that, the people could even get horses to dance around.

The proud horse showed his dance moves, and at the same time, more people gathered to dance along with him.

The crowd grew big with some people accompanying the dancing horse in the center. The horse really knows how to get along with the folks. Meanwhile, the rest of the people enjoyed filming him, admiring his slick dance moves.

At the end of the performance, the horse even stretched out its front legs which made it look like he was giving the crowd a bow!

This video isn’t the only occasion where Ace could be seen dancing. He also busted some moves in a bar in Bourbon street and someone was able to capture the beautiful moment. At that time, Ace was dancing to Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road which was covered by a local musician. Somehow, it was a very fitting song for him.

Put on those dancing shoes and dance with the music along with Ace, click the link below to watch the whole video.
