In London, a horse of the Royal Guard bit and tore off a tourist's coat as she posed for a photo in front of a symbolic sign
A curious incident occurred in London with a tourist who wanted to take a photo next to a royal horse and a cavalryman sitting on top of it. The woman dared to pet the horse and let it smell her, but it all ended with the animal deciding to eat the traveler's outerwear.
Thus, the horse first grabbed onto the sleeve of the tourist's coat, and then completely tore it off. The Mirror shared the details of the incident and photos from the scene.
When the woman felt that the horse was too actively chewing on her outerwear, she tried to get out, but nothing worked. She had to choose: her coat or her whole arm. The tourist chose the latter, so in an attempt to escape from the animal, she began to free herself from her down jacket.
Obviously, at the time, this situation did not seem funny to the traveler, but there is something funny about it, namely the symbolic inscription on the sign next to the woman. It reads: "Beware, the horse can hit or bite. Do not touch the reins. Thank you."
Fortunately, the incident ended without injury and even with smiles. The woman rejoined her group and received fantastic photos as a souvenir.
It should be noted that the Royal Guards are stationed at Buckingham Palace, St. James's Palace and the Horse Guards at Whitehall. In addition to their predominantly ceremonial role, they play a practical role as part of the British Army's housekeeping unit.
