Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but “a horse walks into a bar”….although this time instead of the bartender asking “why the long face”, the bartender dashed for cover.
It’s not a joke, it actually happened at a bar in France. A young racehorse managed to escape her handler and go on a little joy ride to a nearby watering hole. The filly’s trainer Jean-Marie Beguignem told newspaper Ouest-France that he lost control of the animal as he led her from a stable to a racecourse in Chantilly, France, about 30 miles north of Paris. As shown on the video, the horse ran to the back of the sports bar, then turned around to run the way she came in. She bucked her legs while knocking over tables and chairs. Customers can be seen leaping behind the bar and fleeing the establishment to escape the horse.
