Kaley Cuoco has shared a searing statement after a German Olympic horse coach allegedly punched an animal in the face at the Tokyo Olympics.

The Flight Attendant star offered to purchase the horse Saint Boy, telling the owner to “name your price.”

“I feel it’s my duty and heart to comment on this disgrace… This is not Olympic show jumping,” the actress said in a post, alongside an image of the horse.

“This is a disgusting, classless, abusive representation of our sport in so many ways. This team should be ashamed of themselves.”

German coach Kim Raisner allegedly hit the horse during the modern decathlon event.

NBC reported Raisner was caught “punching” the horse while instructing rider Annika Scleu after it failed to comply.

The Modern Pentathlon Foundation responded in a statement published by NBC, writing the “actions were deemed to be in violation of the UIPM Competition Rules, which are applied to all recognized Modern Pentathlon competitions including the Olympic Games.”

The Big Bang Theory actress slammed Schleu and Raisner directly, stating, “You and your team did not do your county proud, or this sport. You make us look bad. Shame on you and godspeed to any animal that comes in contact with you.”

Cuoco called the behaviour “disgusting on all levels.”

“This rider and her ‘trainer’ are a disgrace. I’ll buy that horse outright and show it the life it should have,” she wrote.

Cuoco further clarified her post to insist she “wasn’t kidding” and offered to give the animal a new home in an Instagram post.
