NEW YORK (PIX11) -- The NYPD helped corral a carriage horse that escaped and took off down a busy Manhattan street.

The horse, Barney, trotted away from the stables located on West 37th Street after he broke free from his halter Sunday morning.

The horse was spotted on 10th Avenue and later on 11th Avenue, moving against traffic.

Barney was eventually rounded up and returned to his owner at the stable.

Allie Feldman, Executive Director of NY CLASS watched the video on Monday and was concerned. “Was the horse caught? Was the horse injured? Was it hit by a car?”

Barney’s owners say the horse was not injured and was able to work a full day on Monday.

“This doesn’t happen often, we have a stellar safety record,” said Christina Hansen, a spokesperson Horse and Carriage Association of New York City.
