Train riders in Wales got a surprise this weekend when an unknown man tried to take his pony for a ride. The man first attempted to buy two tickets — one for himself and one for the horse — for a two hour train ride from Wrexham to Holyhead. After being refused, the man continued to the platform anyway, a journey that involved an elevator ride for him and the horse.
When the train arrived, the man tried to board with his horse, but was again refused, this time by a conductor. The man finally left, after being asked to do so by security.
A spokeswoman for Arriva Trains Wales said, “We do allow small animals, such as dogs and guide dogs, onboard but not large animals that could pose a risk to the general public.”
