Ann Brewer's neighbor’s horses had gotten out. The horses were recovered quickly enough — but, unbeknownst to Brewer, the flurry of activity had panicked her 14-year-old Hanoverian/Thoroughbred dressage horse, Mister. The horse had bolted from its stall and ran over a gatepost, breaking it off at the ground. The gate was down, and Mister was gone.

Mister was found in swift, knee-deep water of a creek. His rescuers went down in the water, got soaked, and they were able to approach Mister. One person approached the horse from downstream and was able to get two halters on him. Trying to get the injured 1,500-pound horse moving out of the frigid water was not going to be an easy task.
