(WSVN, CNN NEWSOURCE) A Florida rescue team came together to help a horse trapped in a ditch Tuesday.
According to rescuers-- the owner was riding down the road when the horse got spooked by a passing car in Miami-Dade County.
Both horse and rider ended up falling into a grassy roadside ditch.
The rider climbed out, unhurt.
In order to calm the animal down-- rescuers covered the skittish horse's eyes with a blindfold. They then used ropes and a strong sling to raise the horse up and onto land.
The horse was not injured.
