    I did not know that operating a horse drunk was a crime.

    X2, though I'm good with the other disturbing the peace type crimes. It's probably a municipal law and not a state one.

    An employee of mine was arrested while in college for drunk horse back riding when he took his horse through his college campus at 3am once....

    Out here you see drunken horse riding arrests every couple of months. Many believe if they are drunk and on horseback or a bicycle they cannot be arrested. I still remember one woman trying to convince the Deputies of this as they placed her in the back of the car.

    Ok, time to publically fess up to crimes I've committed on the internets...

    My Mom has a small horse farm at the edge of a suburban county (guess which one). It's about 400 yds from one of our lesser rivers. The neighbors on the river don't mind a bit if we cross their land. There is a honkytonk about 8 miles up the river and another mile off of it. There are trails up the river that are quite wide and maintained, and a trail leading (specifically) off of that to the bar, which has several hitching posts in front (as well as a parking lot for cars). You never cross a road or leave the woods the whole way. I used to (this is about ten years ago) ride up to the bar on nights when the house band (bluegrass/speedgrass) played, and would drink whisky. A few times I rode with friends, and a few times met friends there who drove. I don't ever get DRUNK in public, but I would be lying if I said that I would not have blown DWI. I probably did that about ten times in the summer over the course of five years, and in my defense I never saw another soul, who was not doing the same thing as me, on those trails at night. In light of this thread I was probably breaking the law, and I can understand why it would be illegal with people veering their horse into traffic and riding in suburban areas, but I'll maintain that there was nothing dangerous about this. I did it because I wanted to go and drink and listen to music, and this seemed the least irresponsible way to do it while also doing something else that I enjoyed. Yes, I'm rationalizing...

    ah yes... but the horse has a brain and mind of it's own. It's not a machine. You're not driving the horse. The horse drives itself and you're just along for the ride

    I had a friend that got a DUI on a horse at the hollering contest in Spivey's corner in NC, she attempted to go over the Coca-Cola truck with her horse (horse was fine). Same girl got a DUI on a golf cart. She finally got her mess together and is doing fine...and not drinking anymore.

    Stuff happens, the family of that man has a story to tell the grandkids now. Didn't look like anybody got hurt, the animals didn't know he was drunk.

    Seriously, I don't have a horse and never did. They did get me back in the 70's when I was a kid with no license and snuck Deddy's car. Apparently I drove a nice policeman off the road into the ditch. I really didn't see him, and besides....I paid taxes for both sides of that road.

    He should have waited for me to pass...right?! (btw, this was in Mint Hill, NC...I bet you know the area)

    There have been a few instances of drunken driving on lawn mowers in my area, yes they are ticketed and hauled off to jail.

    I'll wager alcohol was involved in that outcome as well.
