It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but this horse wasn’t kidding around when he headed into a Hobby Lobby just before Thanksgiving.

The loose horse may have been trying to get a jump on Black Friday shopping, but he definitely gave shoppers quite the surprise.

The horse was quickly intercepted by a security guard, so his shopping trip was cut short before he made it to the western decor section or the holiday candy.

Take a look at this surprising video!

The security guard was able to safely usher the horse outside. Horses in tight spaces can quickly get themselves and others into trouble, especially if they spook. Plus, the tile floor wouldn’t offer his hooves much traction, creating another potential safety issue.

This isn’t the first time a horse has wandered into a place where he didn’t belong. Horses have a way of getting themselves into places they’re not supposed to be, and some horses are incredible escape artists.


If you have a horse who always gets out of his stall or paddock, you may need to experiment with different types of latches and systems to keep your horse contained. Some owners have success putting multiple latches on gates and stalls. No matter what you have to do, it’s important to find a way to keep your horse contained, or he could end up in a dangerous situation.
