Lighthoof Tuesday Video: Daring Highway Rescue

Horses on highways seem to be all over the news these days — but here’s another happy ending.

Every time we turn around it seems like there’s another video going viral of a horse somehow ending up on a highway — we’re not sure if that’s commentary on the number of horses around, or the number of highways, but either way it’s a real recipe for disaster.

Fortunately, this loose spooked horse in Texas happened to fall in alongside some good Samaritans who made a daring rescue to ensure she could be brought home safely:

Motorists help out horse on highway

"They just saved that horse's life": Motorists come to the rescue after a horse escaped from its owner and ended up in the middle of a Texas highway.

According to unconfirmed comments on the original video, the horse’s owner reported that he had been working the horse, dismounted to take a break, and had someone intentionally spook the mare — and she ran all the way onto the highway. Public safety awareness message: horses spook, folks, and it’s not fun or funny to intentionally scare someone’s animal!

Fortunately, thanks to these heroes in pickups, this horse was delivered safely from harm.

Go riding!
