Date of Incident: April 18, 2019
Name of Company: Old South Carriage Company
Code: Horse/Mule Related & Property Damage
As a carriage wagon turned left, a construction vehicle needed to move in that direction. A construction employee made the wagon driver back up. As the wagon driver was backing up, the horse became skittish, whipped its head around, and hit its head on a light pole. This caused the plastic light to break. The wagon driver pulled over and barn staff came. Passengers were moved to another carriage, the horse was taken back to the barn, and a vet was called. The horse was not injured but was pulled for the day.
