July 19 (UPI) -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was swinging a machete while riding horseback Thursday in Costa Rica.

The future Hall of Famer posted a videos of himself on the horse on social media. Brady, 41, and wife Gisele Bundchen have a home in Costa Rica and spend time there every off-season. The celebrity couple typically post photos of themselves with their children while surfing, spending time on the beach and riding horses each year while vacationing in the Central American country.


Brady joked about using the Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus song Old Town Road in the video.

"My manager: 'Don't do it man, that song is dead, we can do better,'" Brady wrote.

"I never leave home without my machete," Brady said in a response to a tweet.

Lil Nas said Brady could have asked for a remix of his popular song if he wanted a new version. Brady previously asked the artist to perform at the Patriots' season-opening game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sept. 8 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

"Sign me up," Lil Nas replied.

Patriots offensive lineman David Andrews enjoyed Brady's post. He tweeted a GIF of Terrell Owens back at his teammate, saying: "That's my quarterback."
