Shoppers were left stunned when a man rode a horse into a supermarket to pick up his groceries.

The man was spotted trotting down the aisles and browsing at the deli counter, at The Spar supermarket in Jeffrey’s Bay, Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Bemused shopper Alistair Smith, managed to capture the bizarre moment on camera before the horseman was chased out of the by the store manager.

Alistair, 49, said: “I was on my way into the shop, when I saw the horse canter into the shop. Initially I thought it was a fundraising stunt, but when I saw the manager chasing him out I realised it wasn’t.

“It was a very funny thing. To see the reaction on people’s faces was priceless.
