THIS is the bizarre moment a woman turned up to a McDonald's drive-thru on a HORSE.

The customer was seen arriving at the fast food chain in Borehamwood, Herts., on horseback earlier this week.



The drive-thru is normally reserved for cars, with on-the-go diners ordering from their vehicle via a hole in the wall.

But this bold rider managed to pick up a coffee on four legs instead, dismounting at the window to place her order, Bristol Live reports.

While telling a member of staff what she wanted, the woman's pet could be seen poking its snout through the window – possibly looking for a treat itself.

But the well behaved animal took matters in its stride, calmly walking away after the purchase.

The woman led the pony away with a coffee in hand, chatting away on her mobile phone in the other.

It is unclear whether she ordered any food for her steed – or whether she decided to keep their diet to carrots and hay.

But she is not the only customer to try their luck at the drive-thru.

Lee Watson, 57, made his own cardboard box car to pick up a snack outside a McDonald's branch in Portrack, Stockton-on-Tees.

He braved the rain and stood patiently among scores of vehicles with a cut-out motor hung over his shoulders, held on with two pieces of string.

Lee was gutted, however, when staff refused to serve him.

According to McDonald's, they do not typically serve horse riders – and anything other than a car or road-worthy vehicle is also banned.

It states on its website: "Our drive-thru lanes are custom built for motor cars, vans, trucks and road-worthy mobility scooters.

"The health and safety of our customers and employees is our top priority and for this reason we are unable to serve pedestrians, bicycle riders, non road-worthy mobility scooters, horse riders or any horse-drawn vehicles through the Drive-thru lane.

"Customers on mobility scooters that are not built for road travel are welcome to bring their mobility scooter into the restaurant where possible."
