Owner Swims with Horse to Safety

Occurred on October 13, 2018 / Gilwern, Monmouthshire, South Wales, UK

Info from Licensor: "The video took place at around 11:00 AM in a village called Gilwern in South Wales. The owner of the horse is seen swimming with the horse. The others you can see in the video live on the farm that the field is situated on. I used to keep horses on the same farm. I live close to the field so when I saw how bad the weather was I went to check and see if the horses were ok. When I arrived, the first horse had already been rescued. I then held the horse on the trailer while the second horse was cut free from the fencing as it had become stuck trying to escape the field. The farmer went to get wire cutters which were then used to free the horse. I started filming them as the horse and two men swam back to dry land. The horses miraculously had no injuries at all! They were just very cold and a bit shaken up! The horses are very young and had amazing trust in us humans! Nobody was hurt at all during this rescue which could have ended so badly. I was so shocked the horses survived these conditions!"
