A warning for people who drink and drive or those who think they can get around the law by riding their horse instead of driving a car or motorbike while intoxicated.
A 51 year old woman was recently arrested by police in Logan, south of Brisbane after allegedly riding her horse to a tavern while over the legal alcohol limit.
Police were called to the tavern because the woman didn’t want to leave. When they arrived they found she was intoxicated and riding her horse through the drive-through.
She was taken back to the station where she returned a blood alcohol reading of .226 per cent – more than 4 times the legal alcohol limit.
