THIS is the astonishing moment a horse tried to MOUNT another colt before a race in Japan.
The horses for a race at Hanshin were in the parade ring as the jockeys got on board.
But for T O Conder, things all got a little too exciting for him.
The two-year-old colt got loose and then tried to jump on Roman Nature while the jockey was still on board.
Thankfully the rider hopped off in the nick of time, but the attacked horse was not going to take any prisoners.
He delivered a swift kick to the nether regions of T O Conder that certainly seemed to put the horse off taking things further.
And Roman Nature got his revenge on the randy colt by beating him in the ensuing race. He finished fourth with T O Conder back in sixth.
The video of the shock incident was shared on Twitter by Highclere Racing manager Andrew Hawkins.
And unsurprisingly it led to some rather humorous comments.

Jeff Paris quipped: “Well, they do call it the mounting yard,” while Geoff Hollis added: “This is awesome. Scary for all involved. But awesome!”
