HUDSON, Florida – It appears that a horse can't even enjoy its morning commute in Florida without being hassled by the cops these days.
Officers on patrol in Hudson, Florida on Tuesday were shocked to find a horse casually running on the road without a care in the world.
As it was just before 8 a.m., perhaps the horse was headed to the track for an early morning jog, or to the stud farm for "work."
Pasco County Sheriff's Office deputies were eventually able to corral the horse to safety and away from nearby traffic.
The horse was uninjured and returned to its owners.
On 1/24 shortly before 8am one of our deputies saw this beautiful horse running north on US 19 in the Hudson area. Our deputy called in the Ag Unit and backup "We're travelling at one horse power..." They successfully corralled the horse into safety by directing it to take a left on Rainbow Oaks Dr. and into a subdivision along Emerald Ridge Dr. -away from the dangers of the rushing traffic. Eventually our deputies were able to stop the horse and bring it into safety. The horse was uninjured, the owners were located, and the horse was reunited with them.Posted by Pasco Sheriff's Office on Thursday, January 25, 2018
