Some readers may remember last year's viral horse optical illusion where viewers couldn't decide which way the creature was walking. Well now that mind-boggling illusion has come to life, but unfortunately, it isn't any less confusing. 

Recently a video of a horse walking in the snow has circulated online, but people are divided over which direction it's actually going – and it seems that the more you look, the harder it is to tell. We've seen our fair share of mind-bending optical illusions but this one has certainly stumped the internet. So are you team towards or team away?
