Unexpected sighting: Mini horse rides BART from Oakland to San Francisco

News

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — You can now add a mini horse to the list of unique things seen on a BART train.

The white and brown mini horse was spotted on a BART train Tuesday afternoon — and quickly, photos of the animal started circulating on social media.

The horse boarded a BART train at the 12th Street station in Oakland, according to a witness.

The mini horse eventually got off the train at the Montgomery station in San Francisco.

Most on Twitter weren’t mad about having the pony as a fellow passenger.

Later in the day, BART confirmed the mini horse was a service animal and was, in fact, allowed on the train — as long as they’re on a leash.

The transit agency said the horse’s owner provided the necessary paperwork to ride with the animal.

BART said in a tweet, ” Trained service animals assisting people w/ disabilities and on leash are welcome on BART.”
