A dramatic video of a bride being thrown from a horse during a photo shoot in Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, US.
In the footage the bride is helped onto the horse to pose for pictures ahead of her wedding ceremony, when it suddenly bolts.
A handler can be seen trying to wrestle the horse back under control before the bride-to-be is thrown into the sand meters away.
The horse continues to buck after dumping the bride to the ground and nearly knocks the handler over before it is subdued.
‘This had to be one of the craziest things to ever happen to me on a photo shoot,’ the wedding photographer said.
‘My client decided that since you only live once, she wanted to take a photo on top of a horse. I’m not much of a fan of large animals myself because of the unpredictability of them, but I agreed to take the photo if she wanted.’
‘What happened next was absolutely crazy! The bride was completely fine and not hurt other than a couple of bruises. Made for a fun story to tell at the wedding!’
