Horse Attack

From the BBC:

A woman has died after a horse hitched to a carriage bolted and crashed into spectators at an event in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk…

St Edmundsbury Borough Council Chief Executive Jeff Rivers said health and safety officers were investigating… Mr Rivers said:

“Unfortunately one of the horses, that wasn’t actually being used at that time, was being held by a member of staff. But something happened so the horse took fright, bolted, went round the circuit it had traditionally done when it was giving rides, and then broke away from that and crashed right down the middle avenue where most people were.”

    After cows, neigh neigh a thousand times neigh – not horses now, please! Mind you, now that you have the bit between your teeth I suppose there’s no chance of reining you in as you will not doubt just hoof it anyway.

    Nobody else covers this stuff, so that leaves me saddled with it.
