A stunt featuring a scantily clad woman riding bareback on a white horse has prompted officials to shut down a nightclub in the USA state of Florida.

The club will face a criminal animal cruelty investigation, Miami Beach Police Chief Daniel Oates told reporters.

Miami Beach city officials have revoked the business license for a nightclub after a woman brought a horse onto a crowded dance floor. In the video people can be heard screaming as the horse stumbles and then struggles to get up and right itself.

Meanwhile, Miami Beach Police tweeted that it has been "made aware" of the incident.

A report from News4Jax sister station WLPG said horse stunts at clubs appear to be inspired by famous Studio 54 party.

"We are very concerned over the allegations", police spokesman Officer Ernesto Rodriguez said.

'I will also be sending this disturbing video to local news stations in hopes this nightclub can be penalized for the abuse of a poor and helpless animal.

Just when you thought glitzy, bottle-service nightclubs couldn't get any worse, someone chose to force a live horse into the mix of a packed Miami nightclub.

As weird as the incident is, it's not the first time that a horse has been an attraction at a United States nightclub.

"I am cooperating with the authorities". According to CBS Miami, that's precisely what happened at a club called The Mokai Lounge, according to several viral videos depicting the incident on social media.

This story originally appeared on CBS Miami's website. "I fully support the immediate actions taken by the City Manager and his staff to ensure that this is remedied quickly".
