This is the bizarre moment a woman showed up at a McDonald’s drive-thru on a HORSE.

The customer was seen arriving at the fast food chain in Borehamwood, Herts., On Horseback earlier this week.

Drive-thru is normally car-only, with diners on the go ordering from their vehicles through a hole in the wall.

But this daring rider managed to grab a coffee on all fours instead, dismounting at the window to place her order, reports Bristol Live.

While telling a member of staff what she wanted, the woman’s pet could be seen poking its snout out the window – possibly in search of a treat itself.

But the well-behaved animal took matters into his own hands, calmly walking away after the purchase.

The woman led the pony away with a coffee in one hand, chatting away on her cell phone in the other.

It’s unclear if she ordered food for her mount – or if she decided to limit her diet to carrots and hay.

But she is not the only customer to try her luck at the drive-thru.

Lee Watson, 57, made his own cardboard car to grab a snack outside a McDonald’s branch in Portrack, Stockton-on-Tees.

He braved the rain and stood patiently among dozens of vehicles with a cut engine slung over his shoulders, held together by two pieces of string.

Lee, however, was fired when the staff refused to serve him.

According to McDonald’s, they generally don’t serve riders – and anything other than a drivable car or vehicle is also off limits.

It states on its website: “Our drive-thru lanes are custom designed for motor cars, vans, trucks and roadworthy mobility scooters.

“The health and safety of our customers and employees is our top priority and for this reason we are unable to service pedestrians, cyclists, non-working mobility scooters, horse riders or any other horse-drawn vehicle via the drive-thru lane.

“Customers on mobility scooters that are not designed for road travel are encouraged to bring their mobility scooter into the restaurant whenever possible.”
