HALIFAX – A Halifax police horse threw his rider to the ground and surrendered during Remembrance Day ceremonies on Sunday, injuring the police officer and a nearby citizen.
The cops say the horse, Val, attends the ceremony near the Point Pleasant Park Naval Memorial, on the southern bank of the city, when something has got worse.
They say that the travel officer was thrown and "the horse continued on its own".
The officer and a member of the audience who was caught in the horse gear were treated as "precaution" in the hospital.
Policemen say both have suffered injuries that have been described as non-dangerous and are doing well.
The horse was caught for a short distance, and the police looked at what had happened.
