A horse that shoots hoops is taking on a Harlem Globetrotters' star in Miami Monday in a game of H.O.R.S.E.

The Globetrotters’ Buckets Blakes will be taking on "Amos the Wonder Horse" at the AmericanAirlines Arena Monday afternoon.

The two will be playing with children from the American Heart Hereos, a group that works with children born with congenital heart disease.

Buckets will give the children a sneak peek of the Globetrotters game that will be held March 10 at the Arena and give an honorary award to Amos, an “Ambassador of Goodwill,” for his work as a therapeutic horse in South Florida.
 
The American Heart Heroes is a special program of the American Heart Association that helps build and support the confidences of the youth and their families affected by the hereditary disease.
