Although Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar is a former professional gamer and when of the top Twitch streamers in the world, he is still susceptible to hilarious fails like the rest of us.
As the 5th most popular streamer on Twitch, summit1g is capable of picking up any game and decided to take on the open world of The Witcher 3.
The Witcher 3 is a massive adventure game that launched to rave reviews and is known for providing great moments for content creators.
Unfortunately, as summit1g found out, not all of those moments are positive.
He was fighting a few routine ghouls as his trusty horse watched from the sidelines. The ghouls were giving summit1g a harder time than expected, forcing him to recover away from the action next to his horse.
In real life, it is not a good idea to stand behind a horse since you can never be sure how an animal will react. There is no strict rule when it comes to video game horses, however.

Unfortunately for summit1g, the developers of The Witcher 3 apparently wanted to add a bit of realism to their in-game horses.
Watch below as he hilariously finds out the hard way what happens when standing near a startled horse.
