VIDEO: Rider beats horse during Oshun parade

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Humane Society of Louisiana says it will send a letter to the Krewe of Oshun, requesting it to put in place standards on the care of horses that ride in its parades.

This comes after this video surfaced, showing a rider in Friday night's parade, punching a horse.

The humane society is also forwarding a copy of the video to the Orleans Parish District Attorney's Office to determine if charges are warranted for the rider.

At this point, authorities are not sure of the rider's identity.
