Watch Kaley Cuoco Have the ‘You Ride Horses?!’ Convo With Jimmy Kimmel

Celebrities… they answer awkward horse questions, just like us!

To any one of her many equestrian fans, Kaley Cuoco is a celebrity second, and a high-jumpin’ horse girl first. But like any horse girl whose day job happens to entail making $1 million an episode on a hit TV show in its 10th season (The Big Bang Theory, Mom), we suppose she’s probably obligated to hit the primetime late night circuit every once and a while. Enter her recent stint on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

Refreshingly, Jimmy spends quite a bit of time asking Kaley about her riding life. Less refreshingly are the questions, themselves, which will be instantly familiar to any horse girl who has ever talked to a guy she’s just meeting over a pitcher of Keystones at the local college bar. Questions like, “Are you, like, a professional?” “Is it dangerous?” And, my personal favorite, “Do you ever win these races?”

To which Kaley, like so many before her, must explain that, no, she is not a jockey. No, she didn’t ride in the Triple Crown. And yes, there is a difference.

The undisputed best question of the interview, however, comes when Jimmy asks Kaley if she ever feels like riff-raff when she goes to a fancy horse show—which is actually a new one on us.

(And yes, of course we do. Doesn’t everyone?)


Touché, Jimmy Kimmel. Touché.
