Mr. Toad's Wild Ride: Charleston
I'm trying not to laugh about this (it is really, REALLY not funny), but I can't think of this without seeing the hilarity of it as it may have been viewed by random passersby. I am sorry people were hurt. I'm pleased that no police charges are being filed (against the driver, the scared horse, or the carriage company). I think it is tragic, but if you were a carriage horse and your bridle came off, wouldn't you run for freedom, as well? I know those horses are well-cared for and that they get vacation time part of the year away from the city, but my horses don't like to work, and they don't work NEARLY as hard as the carriage horses do.
