Authorities rescued a rider and a horse after both fell down a cliff Tuesday afternoon.
Sheriff’s Lt. Elisabeth Sachs said the Altadena station got a call at 2:55 p.m. about a man riding a horse who slipped down a cliff at El Prieto Canyon.
Deputies didn’t say how far the man and the horse fell.
The rider and the horse landed at different spots, according to Sachs. She said the man wasn’t injured and Los Angeles County firefighters cut a trail for the horse to walk out.
Sachs wasn’t sure if the horse was injured.
She said several agencies responded to the incident which included the Altadena Search and Rescue, Los Angeles County fire department, animal control and the U.S. Forest Service.
