LIVE hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest dress up like cowboys and ride horses on NYC streets

LIVE hosts Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa dressed up like cowboys and rode horses down the streets of Manhattan on Friday for a pre-taped Halloween segment.

Each horse had a wire-thin rein connected to their bridles, which allowed the off-camera trainers to control their gait. 

The Atlanta-born 44-year-old and the New Jersey-born 49-year-old appeared to have a blast getting out of the office to film in the bustling Big Apple.

Kelly's costume included a cowboy hat, brown leather vest, and massive wide-leg pants - which completely hid her slim 5ft3in frame.

The six-time Daytime Emmy winner then danced a little jig for onlookers to better showcase her bizarre buttoned legwear. 

Ripa made sure to kiss her steed on the brow after her wild ride.
