48

Seven Household Cavalry horses ran loose in central London on Wednesday after throwing their military riders during their morning exercise.

What Happened?

Five people, including a soldier who was riding on one of the horses, were injured in three separate incidents during the six-mile rampage on Wednesday that lasted two hours. 

Four people have since been hospitalised. It is understood that three of them are soldiers who have not sustained life-threatening injuries.

One Household Cavalry soldier was actually left ‘screaming in pain’ after he was thrown from his horse when it struck a car by the Clermont Hotel on Buckingham Palace Road, Victoria. 

Why the Horses Went on a Rampage

The horses were spooked during their daily morning exercise on Horse Guards Parade, in Whitehall, at around 8.40am.

One of the horses has also seemingly ran into a double-decker bus, smashing its windscreen, while another reportedly crashed into a black cab.

Emergency services rushed to the help the injured soldier, who was seen being treated on the road.

Bashir Aden, 48, a construction worker, told The Telegraph: ‘I saw a soldier falling down into the street after the horse ran into a car. One of my colleagues called the police.

‘The man hit the floor hard, he was screaming in pain. You could see blood all over the parked car.’
