Horses in Mexico - level 2

Horses in Mexico - level 2

11-09-2013 06:00

The people of Mexico City saw and filmed horses running in the streets. No, this was not a joke.

About 25 horses escaped from their trailer. They panicked and started running. One horse even ran into a car. The horse was OK, so it got up and ran away.

These horses were police horses which are used for dealing with protestors.

The horses were later caught by the police. Eight horses injured their hoofs.

Difficult words: trailer (vehicle which is pulled and is used for moving things), deal with (solve problem), hoof (black hard part of a horse's foot).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
