Injured Horse Rescued by Poudre Fire Authority
A horse in need of rescue is not a call the Poudre Fire Authority gets often, but they did this past weekend. An injured horse was spotted without a rider near Reservoir Ridge Trail. CSU veterinarians and the Poudre Fire Authority ended up splinting the horses’ legs. The rider was found and did not need treatment.
Final Update: The rider was also assessed & did not require treatment. He had reconnected with the horse when PFA found them about .5 mile from the parking lot. The horse could not move on its own until its legs were splinted. It was then able to walk into the trailer w/ coaxing. https://t.co/OLFR1GCQna pic.twitter.com/b4wwpibdcf
