A man riding a horse caused a traffic slowdown on a busy New York City bridge on Monday morning.
Video posted to Twitter by Ryan Joseph showed the cowboy trotting down the approach to the Outerbridge Crossing on Staten Island with another, unmounted horse. A Port Authority Police Department patrol car followed closely behind with lights on as traffic in both directions crawls by.
"In case you're wondering why there's traffic on the Outerbridge Crossing," said Joseph.
Port Authority police identified the rider as 80-year-old Tod Mishler of Ulster Park; he received two summonses.

It appears that Mishler is the cowboy who travels the country on horseback to raise awareness of childhood hunger.
A profile on the website thelongridersguild.com says Mishler previously rode from Montana to Washington D.C. on horseback.
