Watch: Kicking horse barges into bar

- A horse barged into a bar. It sounds like the start of a bad joke, but bar patrons and employees in France had a frightening surprise when a kicking horse came galloping through.

The young horse escaped her racing stable in Chantilly, north of Paris, and ran for the nearest cafe.

Surveillance video, which you can see in the video player above, shows the horse running from one end of the bar to the other, before making a U-turn and strutting back outside. The animal bumped into several tables and chairs before leaving. 

Thankfully, you can see on the video that everyone was able to get out of harm's way. No one was hurt. 

Bar owner Stephane Jasmin says he was stunned at what happened. He says seven customers were in there at the time -- and that if the horse had came in just five minutes earlier, things might've ended differently. He says a large crowd had just left the bar to catch a morning train.
