Thursday afternoon our squad was activated to an animal rescue near Bucketty.
A horse and rider became separated after the horse was spooked. Rider went one way and the horse the other.
The horse fell 10m down a cliff, then unfortunately fell a further 5m after that. Sadly after a vet’s assessment, the horse was euthanised as it’s injuries were too severe.
Although a very sad situation, it could have been a more tragic outcome if the rider had not have been able to be separated from the horse.
