New Zealand's wild West's reputation is alive and kicking after police arrested a Greymouth woman for being drunk and disorderly on a horse. The 48-year-old was warned by police to go home as she rode to Revingtons Hotel last Saturday night.
However, she refused, claiming there were no laws preventing people riding horses in the West Coast township so continued on her way.

Her trusty steed tethered outside the pub attracted attention from patrons, prompting her to offer them rides around the town's centre for about half an hour or more. However, police were unimpressed and arrested her after pulled her off her horse.
A police spokeswoman said the woman was locked up for the night but only received a pre-charge warning. Greymouth District Council's animal control officer impounded her horse but had since released it to its owner.
