Many different internet challenges have come and gone over the years. But one that’s endured is the “Git Up challenge.” The song is catchy, and it also has a dance that anyone can follow.

After all, the instructions are right in the lyrics!

There are countless videos out there of families, friends, and professionals in their respective fields dancing along that it’s become a trend for others to do the challenge.

It’s even gone viral in the animal world!

No horsing around for this one. These mammals know how to get down when given the proper instructions.

They’re not some of the world’s most graceful animals for nothing!

The song starts with a funky beat with lines that go,

“Right now
I just need you to get real loose
Get comfortable
Grab your loved ones or grab your love partner
And if you’re by yourself no worries
Just follow after me”

Blanco just wants his listeners to have fun whether they have feet or hooves!

How did the song come about?

Brown tells the story,

‘When I first got the track, my homie brought a lap steel to the studio, and I saw them messing around with it. I had never played the lap steel before, so it sounded horrible, as we can imagine. And I tuned it like I tuned my guitar over E and I made one chord bar fret and then I kind of made the loop. And then I added the beat boxing, the kick drums, the 808’s, the snares, the spoons, the tambourines. And after I got finished doing that, I was like, “The song is so joyful, I’ve got to make some lyrics that feel just as exciting.”

Hence, the birth of an internet sensation.

And if you can get horses to appreciate your work, then it’s a masterpiece!

These horses follow the steps really well, even moving to the beat as if they’re counting in their heads. The training does not count if you think about it, as we humans need instructions before getting any dance!

Maybe these horses are naturally gifted with a real appreciation for Blanco’s hit.

Those smaller horses are cute!

They dance along with their human, moving left when Brown says so, and spinning at the right moment. They look super happy doing so too!

The song does have a strong country vibe to it. A vibe horses have in their genes.

It’s wonderful to watch these horses dancing and enjoying themselves with their human — and the horses’ trainer, Peggy Hogan, made sure to mention that the “behaviors were trained with positive reinforcement.” The result is some adorable dancing!
