San Diego County agencies came to the rescue of a horse from a muddy ravine in Descanso.

The woman wasn't hurt, but the horse was stuck on its back in the mud.

The Sheriff’s Department, CALFIRE/San Diego Fire Authority, County Animal Services and an equine veterinarian were all called in to help rescue the horse.

The various agencies and the owner worked together to fashion a series of ropes and several hours after the fall, they managed to right the horse. The animal then walked out of the ravine on its own.
