Smelly Horse rider kicked out of Tesco!

January 27, 2009

Health & Safety

A 29yr old lady dressed in jodhpurs and boots was kicked out of Tesco after somebody in the shop complained that she was too smelly! On 2nd January, Krys Gunton had just finished her morning’s riding and popped into the supermarket to pick up some groceries, when a security guard asked her to leave on ‘health and safety grounds’.

A spokesman for Tesco confirmed that the customer was asked to leave as: “she had manure on her riding boots  –  which is of course not acceptable in a store which sells food.’

But Miss Gunton said: ‘I didn’t have any horse muck on me  –  just a bit of mud….As [her horse] Monty is kept at a nearby riding school, Miss Gunton had not mucked out the animal at all. Indeed, she claimed that the only dirt on her clothes would have been some dried mud on her riding boots. Miss Gunton said: ‘Before I went in I made sure that I wasn’t trailing mess everywhere. It was not like I was covered in horse muck  –  it was just “eau de horse”!’
