  • Woman rides horse through drive-thru for coffee run

A woman has left staff at a McDonald’s shocked after she rode her horse confidently through the drive-thru of the fast-food restaurant.

The odd encounter at McDonald’s in Yarrabilba, south of Brisbane, showed the woman ordering a small chai latte while riding a gold-coated Palomino horse to the initial shock then glee of staff.

Social media users were shocked by the video as the woman rode confidently towards the first window to order and pay and was not turned away.

A McDonald’s spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that riding horseback through drive-thru was strictly prohibited due to the safety of the rider and staff.

The woman posted the video to the TikTok channel, sme_centre, where it has been viewed over 100,000 times.

The video shows the woman approaching the drive-thru behind two cars before she cheekily says, ‘It says “no pedestrians” but it doesn’t say no horses so we’re good’.

Being much higher than the microphone’s height, the woman and horse then slowly trot towards the first window to order a small, soy chai latte.

The cashier is left shocked as the horse twisted its head to look through the window into the kitchen, gaining the attention of other staff.

After the shock wore off, the staff member then reaches through the window to pet the horse as it stood patiently waiting for its rider to pay.

The pair then made their way to the pick-up window where other staff were waiting cheerfully.

‘Oh my god, hello,’ one staff member can be heard saying as they arrive at the window to receive their small coffee order.

‘I have to take a video,’ the same staff member said as other staff members packed into the tiny room to have a look at the horse.

Staff were initially shocked to see the horse trot past the order and pick-up windows but were quickly ecstatic to pet and take videos of the animal 

The video garnered hundreds of comments from users who were shocked she wasn’t refused service by the drive-thru staff. 

‘They served you? Neat …. So many Maccas refuse,’ one user wrote.

‘I used to do this all the time, they usually refuse to serve you these days though so you did well,’ a second wrote.

‘Tried this in the 90s and was told no and wasn’t served! Glad to see its changed,’ a third wrote. 

While some were excited about the potential of riding horses or other animals through a drive-thru, a McDonald’s spokesperson said it was prohibited.

‘Ensuring the safety of our people and customers is our top priority at McDonald’s,’ the spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia.

‘We have strict safety policies in place and do not allow customers on horseback through the drive-thru, for the safety of the rider, our employees, fellow customers and the animal.’
