Im not sure if these are true, but they are funny!

- Tennessee prohibits riders from lassoing fish

-Omega, New Mexico - Every woman must "be found to be wearing a corset" when riding a horse in public. A physician is required to inspect each female on hoseback, and decide whether or not the woman is, in fact, complying with this law!

- Pennsylvania law states: "Any motorist who sights a team of horses coming toward him must pull well of the road. Cover his car with a blanket or canvas that blends with the countryside, and let the horses pass.
