NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police say they had to corral a carriage horse after it broke loose from its handler in midtown Manhattan.

It happened Sunday morning.

Police say a patrol car chased the horse after it bolted from a stable on West 37th Street between 10th and 11th avenues, and went for a trot.

A YouTube video of the incident was circulated by NYCLASS. The advocacy group wants carriage horses banned from Central Park.

Police say the horse was quickly corralled.

The police cruiser managed to maneuver the horse into an empty parking lot on 40th Street and 11th Avenue where the handler was able to seize the animal.

Police say there were no injuries to the horse, property or people.
