Video: Horse takes off down busy NYC street

A New York City carriage horse is safely back in its stable after breaking free and running wild through rush hour traffic.

The horse, a 12-year-old mare named Goldie, broke free on Tuesday while being taken back to her stable in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. Witnesses say Goldie soon went into a full gallop during rush hour, cutting off cars and running across streets.

After running eleven blocks, Goldie returned to her stable on her own. She was not injured. 

A carriage driver said it wasn't that big of a deal and that Goldie probably wanted some exercise and to play after a slow day at work.
