A MOPED rider was kicked to the ground by a startled horse as he tried to overtake an Army procession.

The rider tried to squeeze by near a traffic island as about 30 horses of The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery were two-abreast in a busy London street.

But he spooked one of the animals which sent him and his bike flying across the road.

The rider jumped to his feet and gingerly tried to pick up his moped as Army officers shouted at him to stop.

Meanwhile, the horses had to be calmed and moved back into their 90-metre formation.

Footage of the “idiotic” biker was posted online by Met PC Tyler O’Hare.


Pc O’Hare said: “This is the reason the Highway Code (S214) states: ‘When passing animals, drive slowly. Give them plenty of room and be ready to stop’.

“It’s for their safety, the riders safety and road users safety. It’s vital.”

The horses were understood to have just completed a training exercise in London’s Hyde Park when the accident happened.
