Pony joins Globetrotter to show off his HORSE skills

If you were a Harlem Globetrotter, would you rather be in North Korea with Dennis Rodman or in Tampa with Amos the basketball-shooting horse?

Wait, don't answer that. But do look at this adorable video of the little pony playing its own version of the game of HORSE.

Amos was a surprise guest with Globetrotters star Special K Daley at an antibullying assembly Wednesday morning at Bayshore Christian School, 3909 S MacDill Ave. in Tampa.

Special K was presenting the team's "ABCs of Bullying Prevention" to nearly 200 Tampa kids. The initials stand for action, bravery and compassion to combat bullying.

Special K, a native of Panama, is in Tampa in advance of the Globetrotters game at the USF Sun Dome on Saturday at 7 p.m. (Tickets are available at harlemglobetrotters.com.)

According to a news release about the assemble, the Globetrotters will present the anti-bullying program to 400 schools this year around the country. Amos, who submitted a video to a HORSE competition hosted by the Globetrotters, is known for his therapy work with youth throughout South Florida.
