WATCH: Horse dances to 'Smooth' at Rio Olympics dressage competition

Man, it's a hot one in Rio.

The equestrian dressage competition features horses dancing to music and is a strange event if you don't regularly watch horse competitions, but on Monday we saw a horse compete to Santana's "Smooth" featuring Rob Thomas. It was glorious.

The horse trots around to the instrumental with the one interjection of "my Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa" in the middle of the routine, which really takes the instrumental version to another level.

You may ask why a horse is competing in the Olympics to "Smooth," but this music just happens to better suit this horse's mood. Also, I would ask you why more events don't have Santana and Rob Thomas playing in the background.

There are many little moments in the Olympics like this that will go unremembered once the Games end. When it comes to Smooth horse, let's not forget about it.
