Firefighters and passersby helped rescue a horse that had fallen into a ditch on Lefeuvre Road on Saturday afternoon.

Firefighters rescued a horse that fell into a ditch on Saturday afternoon on Lefeuvre Road in the Glen Valley area of north Abbotsford.

The horse was apparently spooked during a group ride and back into the ditch, which was partially filled with water.

Career firefighters from Hall 8 and auxiliary firefighters from Hall 5 were assisted by riders from the group, and passersby were able to coax the horse, named Fraser, as he was pulled from the ditch.

The horse appeared to be OK, but a veterinarian was called to the scene to ensure that Fraser had not been injured.

Fraser’s rider also appeared to be OK, and assisted at the scene.
