There’s no one on that horse

‘There’s no one on that horse’: Toronto police (temporarily) lose runaway horse.

At first, the 911 operator didn’t believe David Pike’s account of the escaped mount: “(The operator) was like: ‘How did you know it was a police horse? I’m like: ‘Because it was wearing the vest,” he said.

David Pike was sitting on his condo balcony near Fort York Blvd. and Bathurst St. just after noon, talking to a client, when he heard the clip-clopping sound of hooves on pavement.

At first, the freelance photographer thought it was just another police horse passing southbound over the bridge opposite Fort York National Historic Site — until he got a closer look.

“I was like: ‘There’s no one on that horse,’” Pike, 28, said.

Pike watched as the horse, wearing a lime-green vest, turned westbound onto Fort York Blvd., into the oncoming lane. Fortunately, he said, traffic stopped to let the horse trot through the gridlock.
