Twenty one horses that belong to the Queen's Household Cavalry were intentionally let out of their field at the RAVC Defence Animal Training Regiment in Melton Mowbray, Leics.
The horses got onto a nearby road and were reportedly chased by three people on motorbikes, who beeped their horns and revved their engines.
Some of the horses roamed nearly six miles from their home; others were hit by vehicles before all were rounded up nearly three hours later by police, the public and vets using cars and horse trailers. Though the horses did hit and damage some cars, no one, horse or human, was seriously injured. All the horses are recovering well.
A request is being made by police for any information on who may have turned the horses loose.
