BHS officers rescue panic-stricken horse
Equine insurance customers might be pleased to know that two British Horse Society (BHS) officers were called in to rescue a horse that had gone into a panic upon trying on a saddle for the first time.
Attempts to try and get the young equine back by the owners proved futile as she jumped over the fence and into a neighbouring field. The horse remained there for a week before two officers from the BHS arrived to help out.
Emmeline Hannelly, the BHS Welfare Executive said thanks to the expertise of the two officers the terrified horse is now calm and safely in her stable and they ensured nobody was hurt in what could have been a very dangerous situation.
“The BHS has a network of Welfare representatives nationwide, all of whom are volunteers. Every year they help more than a thousand horses, but this was a particularly unusual case," she added.
In October, firefighters had to rescue a horse from a bog at a farm in Urmston, Greater Manchester.
