Commuters in Berlin, Germany, didn't realize they had boarded the pony express last week until a woman brought her Shetland pony onto the train.

A YouTube video apparently taken on Berlin's S-Bahn subway shows passengers snapping pictures and taking video of the pony standing quietly on the train.

The woman holding the leash doesn't seem concerned about confining a live animal in a small underground space.

Passengers laughed and expressed shock at having the hum drum of their day interrupted by a horse,  according to the Daily Mail.

Authorities are not amused.

"This clearly violates our conditions of carriage," a spokesman for the S-Bahn reportedly told the Daily Mail.

"A horse can be dangerous. What if it escapes?"

The S-Bahn said it was reporting the incident to police. The video has more than 300,000 views on YouTube.
