Horse Refused Train Ticket
An unnamed man attempted to buy two train tickets for a two-hour journey to Holyhead, in Wales. The second ticket was for his pony.
The man then took his horse for a ride in the lift, which can carry a maximum of 8 people, but only one man and a pony. He then walked his horse across a bridge over the tracks and down onto the northbound platform.
The man was determined to board the train when it pulled into the station, even though he had been refused a ticket for his horse. The conductor stopped them, but only after an argument with the man.
A spokesperson for the Arriva Trains said the company did not allow livestock to be carried on their trains. “We do allow small animals, such as dogs and guide dogs, but not large animals that could pose a risk to the general public.
Perhaps they should have ‘animal trains’, though it was only a small horse that was trying to get on board?
At least the horse got to ride in the lift.
