Palmetto Carriage Horse, Lucy, Happy and Healthy After Trip and Fall

Lucy tripped and fell during a tour earlier today, but is doing fine.

May 5, 2018 (Charleston, SC) –  Palmetto Carriage Works horse, Lucy, tripped and fell during a carriage tour around 4:20pm this afternoon.

“Sometimes horses and mules can trip just like you or I,” said Tommy Doyle, General Manager at Palmetto Carriage Works. “We are taking all proper precautions and making sure Lucy is thoroughly looked over by a licensed vet. We expect that she will receive a clean bill of health.”

After the trip, Lucy remained on the ground for about ten minutes until her driver could make sure her harness was untangled so that she would not be injured.

“Our professionals acted quickly to make sure Lucy was not injured and our guest were okay” says Doyle. “We are committed to the safety and care of our animals, and will ensure that she is feeling 100% before she returns back to work.”
