After a morning of hot trail riding, a horse decided to take a break in the water of the Santa Margarita River. The only problem was, it couldn't get back up on its own. Riders called North County Fire Protection District for its help. NCFPD was on scene within a handful of minutes. Using its rope rescue equipment, the crews were able to help the old horse get back on its hooves. Seems the old horse was suffering from heat exhaustion and the river gave it a brief respite.
