Snoop Dogg admits to having an odd dread of horses, saying, “I’m scared of them.”
On his YouTube program, rapper Snoop Dogg discusses his phobia of horses. He makes light of his prior existence as the Headless Horseman.
The renowned rapper and performer Snoop Dogg recently disclosed an unusual phobia that has plagued him for years: an equinophobic dread of horses.

On the September 12 edition of his Double G News YouTube news network series, he spoke openly about this anxiety.
In the episode, Tiffany Haddish, an actress who wore a pink tartan suit, was Snoop’s guest. Snoop was dressed comfortably in a bathrobe. Snoop’s response to Haddish’s childhood fantasy of having horses on a farm was, “I’m scared of horses.”
Haddish was taken aback by this statement and said, “What? larger than you are?”
The controversial rapper said, “And still today. I’m not sure why, but I’m simply terrified of them.
Haddish persisted, voicing the question “Are you serious?”
Snoop expressed his worry, “So serious. You’ve never seen me with a horse in a scenario. I’ve been in scenes with iguanas, ostriches, and several other animals. A horse has never been in a scene with me; get that motherf—- away from me. I have no idea why.
Snoop, whose actual name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., also said that his wife, Shante Broadus, had owned a horse for three years and had taken pleasure in riding it to unwind. He chose to maintain his distance from the animal, though, and resolutely refused to engage with it.
Ever the comic, Haddish made a lighthearted suggestion to ease his anxiety by joking, “Maybe in your past life you fell off a horse.”
The 51-year-old performer remarked jokingly, “I think I may have been the Headless Horseman [in my past life],” alluding to the well-known folklore character who gallops about on horseback while wreaking havoc.
Snoop emphasized his appreciation of the value horses carry for many people despite his ongoing phobia of horses. Even more, he offered a future hope of conquering his anxiety by declaring, “I know what a horse means to others. Maybe one day someone will introduce me to a young horse, a jackass, or another creature that I can learn how to get along with.
