Horse

A horse escaped from a field in Colorado, and Arapahoe County Sheriff Deputy, Ian Sebold, came to the animal’s rescue. People who spotted the horse reported it right away.

When Sebold arrived at the scene, he saw that the horse was confused and anxious. He didn’t want to wait for animal control to come, and he took matters into his own hands.

Sebold planned to return the horse to the field, which was 3 miles outside the city. The horse tried to get away, but Deputy Sebold was too fast for him.

He acted quickly without a saddle or halter. Deputy Sebold rode the horse the old-fashioned way. The horse seemed to be more relaxed when he had a rider to guide him home.

It was easy for Sebold because he had been training to be part of the Arapahoe Mounted Unit. They patrol on horseback, and it goes to show how well Sebold’s training was going.

Deputy Sebold said that he saw the horse was terrified crossing a major four-lane roadway. He couldn’t just stand by and watch. Sebold was also an Army Veteran as part of the 82nd Airborne Division.

The horse was returned to safety thanks to the cowboy cop. Deputy Sebold is a natural rider, and it was fortunate that he was the one who was dispatched to handle the situation.
