A pony surprised regulars by trotting into the Oak Inn at Bank, near Lyndhurst. The mare trotted into the bar through the main door and stood, as if expecting to be served.

Barmaid Lizzie Peeling managed to coax the thirsty mare out of the bar. She has worked as a showjumping groom, so knew how handle the pony. It didn't want to leave, but eventually moved outside to enjoy the sunshine...
