BOULDER, Colo. — A man who was arrested Monday after police found him riding his horse drunk through the streets of Boulder, Colorado was reunited with the steed on Tuesday.

Patrick Neal Schumacher, 45, of Colorado Springs was taken into custody after University of Colorado police noticed he was too intoxicated to ride his horse near 14th Street and College Avenue at about 2:15 p.m.

Schumacher told police he was riding his horse to his brother’s wedding in Utah because he couldn’t find his driver’s license. That’s a 600-mile car trip.
