A horse in Israel has escaped with minor injuries after jumping into a moving car.

A tourist captured video footage of three horses galloping down a main road in the Galilee region of northern Israel.

The horses — one of which appears to be a foal — ran into the path of an oncoming car.

The two smaller horses swerved to avoid the vehicle, but the third — a coloured larger horse bringing up the rear — made the last minute decision to jump over it.

The horse leaped straight at the car putting his front legs through the windscreen before jumping out and over the roof.

Amazingly, according to local reports, both the horse and the occupants of the car only suffered minor cuts and bruises.
