A horse is expected to recover after she was rescued from the deep mud of a creek in Doylestown Monday, marking the first rescue of its kind for local firefighters.

It happened just before 6 p.m., when firefighters were called to the area of Sandy Ridge and Pine Valley roads to rescue the horse.

The rider of the horse called firefighters from her cell phone. But when emergency responders arrived at the scene, the rider was fine but the horse was stuck on her side in mud.
Firefighters had to slide the horse up the bank of the river onto dry ground. After about 10 minutes, the horse got up and was able to walk out of the woods on her own power.
