Horse, trapped upside down in ditch, is saved by specialist

A horse stumbled into a narrow dirt ditch and was trapped upside down in Sylmar on Sunday afternoon but was quickly extricated unharmed with the aid of a “horse rescue specialist.”

Rescue workers arrived at a trail off Olive View Drive just after 4:30 p.m. to find the horse inverted in the earth, according to a Los Angeles City Fire Department news release.

After being trapped, the horse walked free.

The horse’s position made a helicopter-hoisting operation unfeasible, but the horse-rescue specialist from L.A. Animal Services’ Specialized Mobile Animal Rescue Team helped devise a plan to dig around the horse so it could move to its side, the release said.

The horse soon walked free. The horse’s rider was uninjured.
