I'll try to describe this as best I can.

Then watch the video below and see if you believe it.

This cowboy is riding a rather tough bronco.

The horse is giving such a hard bouncy ride that this fellow comes right off the horse, high into the air.

That should have been the end of it.

But, on the way back down the rider manages to grab the horse's neck.

He holds on as he flips around.

Right back up the other side.

And lands on the horse's back.

No, not CGI. It's real.

But did the rider mean to do that or did he just try something on the fly and it worked out better than he imagined?

I'm going with the second explanation.

Three problems here.

1). He will never be able to do that again.

2). Other people will try this trick to see if they can do it. I hope somebody figures out how to do it intentionally.

3). I feel bad for the friends and family of this cowboy. He will be bragging about this for the rest of his life. He will never shut up about it.

The good news is that somebody was shooting a video when it happened. So nobody can say he's lying about what happened.

At this point, we have to wonder what the horse was thinking as this happened.

I bet the horse was just as shocked as the rider.

Too bad nobody speaks horse. I'd like to get his honest reaction.

One final note - DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. Unless you're recording it because the rest of us want to see it.

OKAY- Watch the video and see if you believe it.
