A woman has been fined after taking her horse into a branch of McDonalds in Greater Manchester.

The women initially went to the ‘drive-thru’ still riding her horse but she was refused service from the kiosk in Whitefield.

A McDonalds spokesman told H&H: “The health and safety of our customers and staff is our top priority and for this reason we are unable to serve pedestrians, bicycle riders or customers on horseback through the drive-thru.”

After being refused service the woman then dismounted and lead her horse into the restaurant.

It is reported that once the horse was inside the building it relieved itself on the floor.

A spokesperson for the Greater Manchester Police said: “The sight and smell of this caused obvious distress and upset to customers trying to eat, as well as staff members.

“Officers arrived at the location and the woman was issued [with] a fixed penalty notice for causing alarm and distress to other customers and staff.”
