Authorities rescue horse that swam out to sea

Posted: Updated:

SANTA BARBARA (CBS 8) - A horse is back on solid ground, after a daring and unusual rescue from the waters off Santa Barbara County.

It happened Tuesday during a photo shoot on the beach in Summerland. The owner says the horse was spooked by the waves, ran into the water and then reportedly swam at least two miles out to sea.

Harbor patrol and the Santa Barbara Coast Guard had to secure the horse to the side of a boat to bring it back to shore.

The horse was exhausted, but otherwise ok.
