Drunk man rides horse into bank

Ach du liebe!

A drunk German horse rider rode into a bank foyer to sleep for the night, after having one too many for the road during a stopover at his local beergarden.

Wolfgang Heinrich, 40, from the German town Wiesenburg, had been riding with his Haflinger horse Sammy when he stopped to have a drink with friends.

But when he left the pub he realised he was too drunk to ride all the way home – and because it was cold, he decided to use his bank card to open up a nearby bank foyer and take himself and Sammy inside to sleep it off.

Heinrich and his horse were found in the early hours of the morning by local man Stephan Hanelt, 36, who came to the bank to take out some money.

He said: ‘It was a bit of a shock to find a man and a horse asleep in the foyer of the bank. I rang the police straight away.’

Heinrich was let off with a warning and rode home. But bank staff were less than impressed when they arrived and had to clean up after the horse, who had left a deposit of his own on the foyer floor. Link

Oh, that is hilarious. Where I used to live with my husband, in New Mexico, Saturday Night was poker night, boys only. A lot of the guys would ride over to play, so they wouldn’t have to drive. The horses all know their way home, so as long as they weren’t so drunk as to pass out, they’d get home at the end of the night. No highways, just wilderness.

Someone around here bought a cart horse, however it tried to stop and park itself and the cart every time he drove it past a certain bar.
