WATCH | Horse & Cart ‘Race’ Holds Up Traffic On Busy Essex Road

A video has been shared on Twitter of the moment when a horse and cart ‘race’ holds up traffic on the A127 in Essex.

In the video, the horse can be seen travelling along lane number 2 of the busy dual carriageway, where the posted speed limit is 60 mph, as vehicles back up behind it. 

A silver Citreon van is directly behind the horse, accompanied by another vehicle that is towing a horsebox. 

The incident happened on Saturday, 10th April. 

A spokesperson for the RSPCA said:

“Driving a horse or pony on a major road like this can cause unnecessary stress, exhaustion, injury and poses a serious risk of collision.”
