Watch: Horses run wild through traffic in Rockingham

Two racehorses were left running through traffic in Rockingham on Wednesday morning.

Its understood the horses were spooked, which caused their riders to fall off, before they escaped a training facility in Lark Hill about 8am.

Police and rangers spent over an hour trying to round the horses up as they ran through traffic along Ennis Avenue through to Waikiki.

Road users were forced to give way to the animals as police and rangers pursued the thoroughbreds.
