Escapee cavalry horse appears to have injured leg as army locate missing animal

An escapee cavalry horse appeared to have an injured leg as it was located by the army after running amok in London on Wednesday 24 April.

Four Household Cavalry soldiers were thrown from their mounts before the animals bolted.

The military horses caused “total mayhem” in central London after they were spooked by builders moving rubble.

A group of seven horses and six soldiers from the Household Cavalry were on an extended exercise in Belgravia on Wednesday when chaos erupted.

Five of the animals got loose, smashing into vehicles and causing a number of injuries.

An army spokesperson confirmed all of the horses have now been recovered and returned to camp after being assessed by vets.
