Crowborough’s specialist Animal Rescue Unit came to the assistance of a horse trapped in a ditch.
The distressed animal was located half way down Warren Road, in Crowborough, yesterday(13th July) at 4.39pm.
Two crews set to work to free the animal after it was sedated by a vet which enabled firefighters to safely free the six-year-old pony. The vet was then on hand throughout the rescue and crews left the pony in the safe hands of the vet by 6.16pm.
East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service has since had confirmation that the pony is doing well.
