Everything was going so well for this group who were seemingly enjoying a family gathering.

The kids were playing, the adults were hanging out in the shade, and one man was assisting a younger boy on a horse.

Just as the man led the boy and the horse around the yard for a nice, peaceful walk - things went terribly wrong.

Something must have gotten into the horse, as he began trotting and then went into a full-on gallop. As the horse sprinted towards the driveway, the man lost control.

The child eventually went flying off of the horse and onto the hood of a car as the animal narrowly missed running into the car.

Hopefully the child was not injured in the incident that was captured on camera.
