A horse was spotted tied down in the bed of a pickup truck traveling down a Texas road in Corrigan on Saturday. Ami Parbs had been driving and spotted the strange situation; she posted the video her daughter recorded on her Facebook page, stating the horse was having difficulty standing up. The horse’s reins were being held through the back of the windshield.

According to AbcNews, the truck had been traveling down Route 59 when police were finally able to pull the driver over at a Whataburger store. Now get this! Authorities did not issue the driver a citation, because it is not illegal to transport a horse as shown in the above video.
The driver stated he had been on his way to work at the Stockyards, and the truck he normally used wasn’t working, so he was forced to use his pickup truck and load the horse in the back. As the video of the horse in the back of the truck went viral, readers questioned the safety of the mode of transportation.
Fortunately, the horse did arrive safely and no vehicles were in accidents. Police stated it was a very well trained horse valued at $15,000.
