All the humans involved walked away from the 5 p.m. accident unharmed, but the horse had a nasty- looking gash to its head.

A horse pulling a hansom cab was in “stable” condition yesterday after being struck by an SUV in Columbus Circle.

All the humans involved walked away from the 5 p.m. accident unharmed, but the horse had a nasty- looking gash to its head.

“He’s fine, he’s fine,” the coachman insisted after his 12-year-old mare, Doreen, limped off to a trailer.

Doreen’s head cracked the windshield of the SUV after she was sideswiped by the vehicle.

A man on a Ducati motorcycle was also hit by the SUV, but was uninjured.

Cops ticketed the SUV driver, Peter Tochet of Bronxville, Westchester, for driving with a suspended license.
