Suzanne Kruger posted the video over the weekend which has already been viewed 10 000 times with very mixed reactions.
“I have no idea what this guy was thinking (John Waye’s brother i think)…. these tiles are sooo slippery and to ride with a horse in Spar…. lucky it turned out allright.”
The horseback shopping spree was shortlived as Erasmus was forced to leave the store empty-handed after being gently hoofed out by the supermarket manager.
Erasmus told the Herald that the supermarket was their third stop, with the pair having spent some time at a nearby pub and then at a liquor store before “popping in to get some meat”.
“I did it for kicks. People were looking for some sensation‚ so I gave it to them and warmed them up‚” Erasmus told HeraldLIVE.
One of the shoppers, Lisa Sipika was browsing through some books in the store when she “heard the sound of trotting”.
“I thought this does not sound normal. I looked up and there I see a horse riding past me. Everyone was shocked,” she said.
“There were not that many people in the store, but people were taking out their cellphones and taking photos and filming.
“The incident really made my day – in fact, it has already made my year.
“Who would ever have thought they would see a horse in a shop? It was a fun experience.”
She said the incident appeared to have been taken in good spirit by all, including the manager of the store.
“It created a talking point in the store – people were talking to each other in the aisles and at the cashiers about the incident. It was really fun. It blew my mind.
“We live in a really awesome country where things like this happen from time to time,” Sipika enthused.
