WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Video clips show unusual traffic on Interstate 684, although it is equine instead of vehicular.

The videos, posted to YouTube by Sam Hollander, shows a galloping horse heading north near the Exit 6 interchange with Route 35 in Katonah.

Even as the horse jumped over the guardrail into the southbound lanes, no accidents occurred as a result of the incident.

“This is gonna go viral,” a woman can be heard saying in the video.

The incident occurred Monday, according to New York State Police. The horse was subsequently caught and put into a horse trailer.

Information on who owns the horse and how it became loose on the highway was not immediately available.
