Can We Get On A London Bus With A Horse?

LBC Studio

Wednesday 8th October 2014

This is what happened when an LBC reporter tried to get on a bus with a horse.

Yesterday on LBC's Ask Boris, the Mayor of London was asked if you are allowed to take pets on London buses and responded: "I don't see any reason why you can't take pets on buses.

When pressed if a horse would be allowed, he said: "I don't see why not. Horses used to pull buses after all. See what happens if you try to take a horse on a bus."

So LBC's Senior Reporter Tom Swarbrick was dispatched to try to board a bus with two ponies from Ross Nye Stables - Barry and Upham.

Watch the video above to see how they got on.

Kirsty Nye, owner of Ross Nye stables, told LBC: "In nearly 50 years of being in Central London we have never attempted taking a horse onto bus.

"But after Boris Johnson said on LBC that you could take a horse with you on a bus in London, this could be an alternative method of transporting our horses!"

The riders with us were Annie Guerard and Morgen Day.
