SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (KABC) -- A horse was rescued after it fell 60 feet down a ravine at Caspers Regional Park in San Juan Capistrano Monday.

Video captured the 8-year-old horse, Lola, getting hoisted to safety by a helicopter.

The rider says she jumped off after the horse began to buck. The horse then fell about 60 feet down a ravine.

Due to tough terrain, the horse couldn't be walked out.

After a veterinarian sedated her, an Orange County Fire Authority technical rescue team used its helicopter to hoist the horse to a safe location and reunite her with her owner.

The owner was not injured.
