WATCH: 1,000-pound horse hoisted to safety by helicopter

A 1,000-pound horse named Sunny was rescued from a ravine by helicopter near Lake Skinner on Friday, Nov. 26.

Sunny’s flight took about 10 minutes, courtesy of Riverside County Animal Services and other public safety responders who teamed up for the hoist rescue.

The 4-year-old gelding wound up in a ravine between two boulders after his rider fell off the horse on Wednesday. The ravine was just off of Indian Oak Drive, west of De Portola Road, in unincorporated Temecula.
