This horse was a little nervous before going crazy, prancing and falling on his back. As far as I know, the horse is safe now.

This image was taken during a parade that is a yearly reenactment of a Turkish invasion of the small town of Potenza, in southern Italy. The Turkish invasion, more likely an attack of Saracen pirates, is believed to have been stopped by the town’s patron saint.
