U.K. Cyclist who undertook and hit a horse during a triathlon is convicted in court

A cyclist who undertook and hit a horse animal during a triathlon has been ordered to pay $1,200 dollars

Iain Plumb of Crowthorne, U.K., was taking part in the Royal Windsor Triathlon, near the Queen's residence Windsor Castle, when he hit the horse and rider, causing the animal to bolt.

The incident was recorded by the woman on the horse and went viral when she published the video.

Plumb stupidly tried to undertake the horse and hit the frightened animal, which was already close to the left side of the road, giving way to the other participants  on the right. (They drive on the left handside in the UK).

Plumb was given a life ban from all sporting events and was found guilty of "riding without due consideration" following a trial at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court in the U.K.

He was also ordered to pay £50 in compensation to the horse rider, a victim surcharge of £30 and court costs of £630, a total of over $1,200 dollars in fines.
