Punters crack up as bloke knocked off horse as he rides into pub to order a pint

A hapless jockey has left punters in stitches when he rode a horse into a pub for a pint and ended up being knocked to the ground.

Pub-goers at The Angel Inn in Burnley, Lancashire were celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee when a man came in on a horseback on Thursday, June 2.

Video taken by a man from the group shows a man leading the animal with a rope while his pal is riding on the back.

When they step in the narrow corridor into the pub, the jockey doesn't realise the height and hits his head on the door beam, and another one further in.

As they walk into the bar, the man falls to the ground, knocking a pub-goer's beer off his hands.

The crowd cheer and burst into laughter.

One onlooker said: "We were all having a good time, having a drink and a laugh and celebrating the Jubilee.

"This lad comes in holding his horse with a rope and another man on the back of it, riding it into the pub!

"He whacked his head on the top of the door frame, stumbled backwards and fell into this other man who, at the time, had a pint in his hand.

"He knocked it all over him, covering him in beer! Everyone in the pub was laughing and the horse was at the bar ordering a beer — well, that's what it looked like!"

The man ended up being told by the bar staff to take his horse out of the pub so they could clean up the mess.

"We just carried on with our day. Not every day you see a horse come into a pub!" the man added.
