The man, traveling from Wrexham to Holyhead in Wales, approached a clerk at the station and asked for two tickets on the 7:02 train after he was refused entry on the train by a rail worker, Australia's Daily Telegraph reports.

The clerk would not sell him tickets, but he tried to get on the train regardless. He got into an argument with a rail worker, saying "I know the law" when told he was could not bring a horse on the train.

An Arriva Train Wales spokesperson told the BBC: "Arriva Trains Wales allows dogs and small animals to travel on-board trains. All animals, except dogs, must be conveyed within a fully enclosed basket or pet carrier with dimensions not exceeding 85 x 60 x 60cm."

So a pony doesn't fit the bill, you say?

Undeterred, the man was told he could not ride the train...so he took the pony in the station's elevator, perhaps for a small glimpse of a ride.

After reading many of the reader's comments, I have come to the conclusion that most of you are totally insane. A pony riding on a train???? with people aboard, how absurd, those trains are not that large and were not built to carry large animals no matter what kind they are. The train was not Noah's Ark.
