“Crews worked with a veterinarian and staff to get the horse out,” the fire service said. “After an initial attempt to get him up it was determined that a helicopter extraction was needed.”

The animal was airlifted to a non-profit riding center to be examined by veterinarians, where the fire service said he was able to walk on his own.
