This photographer got a little more than he bargained for as he took pictures during the rodeo section at the 2013 Royal Horse Show in Toronto.

The horrified crowd gasped as the snapper was sent flying by a charging bull.

But, luckily, the man got back on his feet with a little help from medical staff and cowboys who were part of the show, reports the Daily Mail.



The Royal Horse Show is part of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. According to the heraldonline.com, the fair is a family tradition since 1922. It says: "The Royal Horse Show brings world-class horses and riders from Canada, the US and overseas, including Olympic and World champions, to Toronto each November to compete for almost $800,000 in prize money and prestigious titles.'

The site adds: "Over 850 horses of all shapes and sizes participate in show jumping, dressage, indoor eventing, driving, coaching and so much more, over the ten days of competition."

But we doubt anyone expected to see a photographer up-ended by a raging bull.
