Sometimes, it’s the little things in life that bring the biggest smiles.
Riding a horse is not exactly sky diving or bungee jumping, but it can find its way onto someone’s bucket list just the same.
According to a message posted to his Instagram account on Sunday night, Georgia RB Sony Michel had horseback riding on his personal bucket list.
And he checked it off the list in style:
The best part of the video? The uncontrollable joy on his face and the laughter that follows the question “Why are you so happy?”
Georgia fans may get a little nervous seeing him up on that horse, but it appears as though he came away without any injury to report.
Michel will be a key piece to the Bulldogs offense in 2016, providing some stability to a backfield that will feature fellow RB Nick Chubb’s hard-to-predict return from a severe knee injury.
Michel rushed for 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns on 216 carries in 2015. With good health, another 1,000-plus yard season could be on the docket for his junior season.
