A female horse-rider who was refused service in the drive-through lane of a McDonalds while in the saddle, subsequently led the animal inside, where it defecated on the floor.
CCTV showed the woman and her daughter taking their pet into the restaurant after they were told they had to tie it up.
But then customers in the restaurant looked on in astonishment as the animal ended up doing his business on the floor.
The woman was issued with a fine after the incident at the branch on Bury New Road in Whitefield, Greater Manchester, last Saturday.
Police were called to the scene.
A statement issued by Greater Manchester Polices Whitefield Division read: On Saturday, July 20, police from Whitefield received a call from McDonald's on Fountain Place regarding a woman on horse using the drive thru.

What? they couldn’t just tie it up to the hitching post outside?.......geez
Lord Bowler had an idea for riding one’s horse to a window for getting food to go in a Brisco County episode.
He’s lucky the horse wasn’t seized and turned into Big Macs.
I think that was why the horse s*** itself!
I live in Delaware and can’t recall any stories about Amish people trying to get their buggies through a drive-in.
I wonder why they refused her drive thru service....horse or car...I don’t see a big difference...when you pull up to the window....
Good point. The horse smelled cook horse and thought “oh sh.. I’m next”.
The world is filled with strange people.
There are many people spending a lot of money feeding animals who wouldn’t give a sandwich to a starving man.
When I was 14years old I actually rode a horse into a fruit shop and got away with it!-I got to cross this one off my bucket list!
Naww. The horse was leaving its opinion of McD’s.
That is a possibility.
His horse got tied to a light pole! He got thrown into the tank!
...not the horse in the article!
Same here. I've seen bicycles go through. I'd be ticked too if they hadn't served me, although bringing the animal indoors was probably the wrong response. Should've just taken her money elsewhere.
It’s discrimination, I tell ya’. A person shouldn’t have to leave their seeing-eye horse outside. The horse helps them pick from the menu. The American Disabilities Act surely covers this.
Short of is is they plopped their diapered offspring on a table and changed a #2 diaper right where everyone was eating while smirking about it. I'm sure a hose can drop a lot larger load than a small child although to be fair, the horse didn't do it on a table.
Get a little horsesh*t, give a little...
As someone who knows a guy who got a DUI on a mule (hey! the mule knew the way home and enough to stay out of traffic), I think they probably should have served her at the drive-through.
Who would want to incur the possible liabilities of leaving a horse tied up outside unattended (they kick, they bite)? Not to mention the chance of some jerk hurting the horse?
There ya go Bob! It’s a SERVICE ANIMAL!
Probably better than half the "hamburgers" they were cooking.
The horse defecated because he thought he was going to be the next quarter pounder...
I wonder why they refused her drive thru service....horse or car...I dont see a big difference...when you pull up to the window....
When I was about 14, a bunch of us were hungry at about 2 AM and tried to walk up to the Burger King drive through. They said they couldn’t serve us unless we were in a car. We walked around the building, formed up in a “car formation,” walked up to the speaker (while the two in the “back seat” made car noises, and ordered. The staff laughed and told us to “pull-up to the window.”
People want to work with you if you have a sense of humor.
I see yer problem, you’re letting the horse order!
Take a patty. leave a few!
Ohhhh, Wilburrr! I think that burger used to be my sister...
Just Brits being British ........
British horsemen have a long tradition of riding through the turnip patches of the peasants while in hot pursuit of a fox.
Eventually, said mere peasants left and formed “a more perfect union”.
