Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service received a call from a member of the public reporting that her horse had fallen into an old sunken muck heap and become stuck.
A fire appliance from Seaton and specialist rescue crews from Exmouth were immediately mobilised by fire control.
On arrival, the incident commander confirmed that one horse was trapped in mud and while specialist rescue teams were en-route, the crews got to work to make the scene safe. A telehandler from Service Headquarters in Exeter was also sent to assist with the rescue.
The horse was eventually rescued using specialist rescue equipment and a telehandler and was left in the care of its owner and the vet.
