Jingang is an over-dramatic horse who apparently doesn’t seem to want humans riding on his back. Instead, he goes out of his way to avoid doing his job.
Jingang pretends to be dead in an overly-theatrical way. It’s silly. Whenever he’s tacked up and asked to ride, he dramatically crumbles to the ground and plays dead, only to miraculously spring to life when he thinks the coast is clear.
Jingang has got the death trick down so well that he even loosens his tongue, closes his eyes, and puts his hooves in weird positions to make it look like he left this earth. The performance is over immediately after the rejected rider leaves. However, when the rider approaches to make a second pass, Jingang topples to the dirt once again.
His owner states that Jingang is “cute, but naughty,” and decided he might as well give the world a laugh by featuring a video compilation of his horse playing dead. Each and every time, Jingang nails his dramatic performance and it’s rather entertaining.
