Vancouver Carriage Horses Spooked by Nearby Pipeline Protest

Posted by TF Oren

A routine carriage ride quickly went south for a group of tourists in Vancouver, Canada.

The carriage was traveling through Stanley Park, a public park bordering downtown Vancouver when it stopped to make way for a group of anti-pipeline protesters. While it was stopped, someone in a nearby car honked the horn.

The carriage horses spooked and took off. They jumped over the curb, crashed into a bench, and galloped down the riverfront path.

Several passengers were thrown from the carriage when the horses spooked, and several more jumped off and rolled to safety.

A number of people, including several police officers, gave chase, and eventually the horses calmed down and came to a stop.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the mishap.
