Confucius once said that if you put people and horses together for long enough, there's bound to be trouble.

OK, it may not have been Confucius who said it, but I'm absolutely certain someone has uttered words to that effect.

Horses and people have come together in their usual crazy way during 2008 and it's time to look back at just how weird and wonderful that relationship has been.

What a year! Horses have copped the blame for everything from Madonna's divorce to providing bad press for a US presidential hopeful.

Several incidents have proven that alcohol, horses and people never mix - and it doesn't matter who is doing the drinking.
