Volunteers and firefighters helped to free a horse in the small town of Fruita, Colorado Tuesday after it fell into a ravine.

The horse's owner says the horse was training when it kicked and fell off the embankment and into a ravine.

The woman says the trainer tried to free the horse for an hour and that's when she realized she needed help.

It took several hours, the help of firefighters, volunteers and a veterinarian to help free the animal. The vet sedated the animal so it would calm down a little while rescuers pulled it to safety.

The horse was still be evaluated, so we don't know what condition it's in or if it suffered any injuries.

Fruita, Colorado is a small town west of Grand Junction.
