Horses in supermarkets?

Did anyone see the fracas yesterday outside Waitrose after a lady tried to ride her horse into the store? She was trying to explain to staff that there wasn't a suitable place to leash the horse and she was worried that the horse may run off if it wasn't suitably restrained. She tried to assure the staff that it was only for a few bits but still, I'm not sure that a horse wandering around a supermarket is a) hygenic b) entirely safe (?!) and c) Might possibly damage the floor with hooves? I know horses to be quite placid animals but would worry about it slipping on some of the mats in the fruit and veg section. In the end her custom was refused, with staff saying they would be more than happy to serve her if she were to return on foot.
I was wondering if anyone was aware of perhaps other places which still rely on riding horse back a lot taking their steeds into supermarkets..?

Does this mean I can bring my camel to aldi? There is a nice bar to tie him up to outside and they sell fertiliser anyway so no problem with his output.

There is no place in an urban area for a dysfunctional animal like a horse these days; except for token tourist attractions like the Harvey's dray. This lady is taking her hobby too seriously, and should take a car or bus into town.

Would a rickshaw be acceptable?

It seems entirely reasonable to me. Leave it by the apples while you dash round for the essentials. Asda have embraced the idea in Ireland.

@Driver. I'm not sure that taking cars into town isn't dysfunctional these days. Too much traffic, no where to park etc. perhaps should be limited to the disabled etc, and better public transport developed.

Maybe it was a horse for a physical/mental impairment? I don't think we should jump to conclusions and right off the situation as ridiculous...
