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.”
