A carriage horse broke loose from its reins from and ran around Central Park Monday afternoon, only stopping when the carriage got caught in the door of a taxi. Around 5:45 p.m., the carriage horse, named Pumpkin, broke out of its bridle and started running with the carriage through Central Park, according to a Teamsters representative. There were no passengers or driver onboard. The horse followed its usual route along the roads within Central Park, and exited the park at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street where a group of horse carriage drivers were waiting to corral the animal, the representative said.
