Grover Beach police corral runaway horse

February 1, 2022


Hildago, a 14-year-old horse, escaped from the beach parking lot on Monday fleeing east on Grand Avenue through the City of Grover Beach.

Grover Beach police officers worked to stop the runaway horse. With the help of community members, officers corralled Hildago near the intersection of 10th Street and Seabright Avenue.

“We’re happy to report Hidalgo’s trainer arrived shortly after and all is well,” officers announced on Facebook. “It took some time to get him loaded up, but we’re just guessing he wasn’t ready to leave the beach. Can you blame him?”

I’m glad this article didn’t start with: “In a hail of gunfire”…

Last week a Sheriff car hit and killed a horse on LOVR, wish that would of been a happy ending too:(

Seemed like a good idea at the time…

I absolutely support and care for the men and women in blue, and horses as well. But in couple of days the Grover Beach Police walked away from an intoxicated man with a gun one day, and now had to detain a fleeing horse the next. It’s great all is well at this point, but intoxicated man with a gun, could we please have an explanation on Facebook as well so we could understand that decision?
