Yes, the image of Bianca Jagger riding a horse into Studio 54 is very glamorous, but pleeeeeeeeeease, kids, do not try to recreate the legendary disco moment at your local watering hole.
A Miami club learned the hard way that horses do not belong at crowded parties when a bikini-clad woman entered the Mokai Lounge club while riding a horse. According to Cosmopolitan, the animal was predictably spooked and threw the woman off its back before trying to escape. A video shows a man trying to restrain the horse after she fell.

A Change.org petition has since been started and called on the local police to take action.
“People go to nightclubs to have a good time, enjoy drinks with friends, dance and party,” read the petition. “This environment is by no means a place for ANY animal or wildlife.” The petition currently has nearly 2,900 signatures.
Mokai Lounge was slapped with a police investigation and its license was revoked.
“Due to the acts by Mokai Lounge and their violations of the City Code, the City Manager [Jimmy] Morales ordered the immediate revocation of their business license effective immediately,” read a press release from the city.
The club’s owner, Roman Jones, said,
“The horse is not hurt. The marketing director, who arranged the stunt, that I was unaware of, is suspended without pay. I am cooperating with the authorities.” According to CBS4, there were previous incidents of animals like camels and other horses inside the club.
