Horses are magical and elegant, and there’s nothing more breathtaking than a bride in her wedding dress posed atop a beautiful horse. It’s like something out of a fairy tale. However…
While a wedding photo shoot on your horse might seem like the perfect way to capture memories, this bride’s photo shoot didn’t quite go as expected.
The video starts out with people gathered around the bride Lauren Peterson Mahaffey in Myrtle Beach, S.C. She was carefully placed onto the animal. That’s when things veered completely off track.

As the bride holds on for a short ride, the horse suddenly freaks out and splits — leaving the bride lying face first in the sand.
“I was dumbfounded. I stood there frozen but she got up laughing. We were all relieved she wasn’t hurt.… She was a really good sport about it,” photographer Jarrett Hucks said.
“I’ve talked to a few equestrian people and they said it was the fabric that freaked the horse out,” he added.
