The Escape (and capture) of Garibaldi the horse

Garibaldi, a horse carrying one of the Republican Guards outside the Elysée Palace, must have decided he wanted his liberté. Throwing his rider, he set off for what turned out to be a 5 kilometre gallop along Paris streets bordering the Seine. Eventually caught by police, he was found to be only slightly injured after a couple of falls. The rider he had thrown was not injured at all!

See the video clip!
