One person commented that perhaps this was the horse's last trip before circuit breaker - Singapore's version of a movement control order - was enforced.

Turns out, the 11-year-old animal whose name is Cocorita wasn't horsing around and was simply trying to find her way home after having escaped a nearby paddock

Paddock owner Ronnie Lim told The Straits Times that a horse handler was about to close the door when a loud screech from vehicles nearby caused the horse to be frightened and run out.

Cocorita was found grazing on a patch of grass within 20 minutes of her escape.

"She probably got distracted and had a bite. She was calm and we put a collar on her and walked her back to the stables," Lim told the news daily, who added that vets have since confirmed that the mare is healthy and stable.

Cocorita is an 11-year-old children's riding horse.
