Will your horse be paying a visit to the polling station tomorrow?

  • Tomorrow (8 June 2017), the British public will be taking to the polling stations for the General Election — and we're hoping to see a few horses in tow as well...

    Posting pictures of dogs waiting patiently outside polling stations when it comes to election time (#dogsatpollingstations) has become something of a British tradition — a fast track way to making British politics more bearable with your pooch in tow.

    But at last it seems that horses are putting their hoof in as well.

    If you’re struggling to get excited about Brexit negotiations and details of pension reforms on the final day of campaigning today, we suggest shifting your focus to #horsesatpollingstations

    Take a look at these pictures of horses showing us how it’s done at recent elections:
