A horse and jockey came out of an incident that was quite scary—albeit amazing from a spectator's standpoint—at the Laytown Races in Ireland Thursday.
The horse appeared to get spooked by something and went up in the air, full Michael Jordan-style, to the jockey's surprise. Thankfully, the jockey was able to settle the horse and mount it before the animal took off in a full sprint down the track.
The incident also produced an incredible photo.
