PHILOMONT, Va. — A wayward horse that fell into a backyard swimming pool in northern Virginia is back on dry land after getting some help from fire and rescue workers.

Loudoun County Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Laura Rinehart says the department was called Thursday to a home in Philomont, about 40 miles west of Washington. They were asked to help sheriff’s deputies and animal services workers rescue a horse that had wandered into the yard, walked out onto the pool cover and dropped into the water.

Rescue workers cut a path through the pool cover, enabling the horse to safely exit the water.

Rinehart says the horse didn’t belong to the homeowners.
