Just last week, the world came to a standstill, when footage of pentathlon coach, Kim Raisner, appearing to punch a horse went viral, much to the disgust of folks across the globe.

Now, one woman wants to take that horse away and give the horse a better life. And that woman is Kaley Cuoco.

Do you remember the story of Kim Raisner? The German pentathlon coach who was barred from the Olympics after footage emerged of her appearing to punch the horse in the side?

German athlete Annika Schleu had been struggling to control the horse, Saint Boy, ahead of her show. Schleu could be seen in tears as she tried and failed to get the clearly distressed animal under control, to no avail. That's when Raisner was seen punching Saint Boy in the side, as she leant over the fence.

The International Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM) reviewed footage which showed Raisner appearing to strike the horse with her fist. They then released a statement, announcing their decision to have her removed from the Olympics.

But things may be looking up for Saint Boy with actress, Kaley Cuoco, offering top dollar to buy the horse and give it a better life.

Taking to Instagram yesterday, Cuoco revealed that she is serious about buying the horse, writing:

I feel it's my duty and heart to comment on this disgrace. This is not Olympic show jumping. This is a disgusting, classless, abusive representation of our sport in so many ways. this team should be ashamed of themselves. You and your team did not do your country proud or this sport. You make us look bad. Shame on you and godspeed to any animal that comes in contact with you. Pure classless behavior right here. Disgusting on all levels. This is not our sport. This does not represent our sport, This rider and her 'trainer' are a disgrace.

However it didn't end there.

Cuoco finished by saying:

I'll buy that horse outright and show it the life it should have. Name your price.

And Cuoco definitely wasn't joking either, saying later on: "Oh I wasn't kidding."

The actress, best known for the Big Bang Theory, then shared countless articles about her claims to buy the horse.

Cuoco is married to horse trainer Karl Cook, so buying the horse would certainly be in Saint Boys best interests.

Let's make this happen.
