Horses swimming in deep water is not unheard of, especially on the Caribbean islands, such as where Kristen was before her journey.

Resorts often offer horse riding excursions that include ocean trips, but it is up to the company to ensure that the animal is cared for so that they do not get tired of these activities.

& # 39; That's NOT how to sit on a horse & # 39 ;, wrote a commentator.

Inform a representative of Kristen & # 39; s team Buzz feed that the horse was not in danger during the entire photo shoot and was a guide with the influencer to help handle the horse.

& # 39; The horse was safe at all times, & # 39; said the representative, calling Kristen a & # 39; animal lover & # 39 ;. & # 39; There were no waves and nothing that could endanger the horse. & # 39;

& # 39; Kristen … has two dogs of his own and would never do anything to endanger an animal of any type, & # 39; the representative continued
