Horse charity boss defends Household Cavalry training: ‘Nothing cruel’

The chief executive of a horse charity has insisted there is "nothing cruel" about the way Household Cavalry horses are trained after several of the animals threw their riders and wreaked havoc across six miles of central London on Wednesday, 23 April.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain the following day, The Horse Trust boss Jeanette Allen said the incident was a "one-off."

She added: "All the service horses that come here to retire come still really happy to work with really strong bonds with their riders.

"99.9 per cent of the time no incidents like this ever happen."
