James O'Brien is Leading Britain's Conversation.

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.
