A brave woman recently helped rescue a horse that had fallen off the edge of a trail on the Grand Canyon. Cassie, who describes herself on TikTok as a “New York cowgirl,” shared the harrowing experience in a viral video. She found the distressed mare trapped on the side of a dangerous slope and proceeded to remove the horse’s riding gear. While Cassie freed the animal, her husband was busy helping the rider, who had been bucked off on the trail.

“I can’t describe the gut wrenching feeling I had when I heard ‘Her horse went over the edge.’ It wasn’t even a decision… I knew I had to help,” she wrote in the video caption. “It is hard to capture how steep this area is on video. To give you an idea… I had to slide all the way back down to the trail. Only a few rooted trees to depend on.”
Thankfully, both mare and rider are now safe!
