“Nobody went into the water,” Matthew Yeager, Chief of Knox Volunteer Fire Company, told exploreClarion.com.

The incident occurred at a farm just outside of Knox on State Route 208 in Beaver Township, Clarion County.

Yeager said officials aren’t sure exactly how the horse came to be in the pond, which was located in a pasture, but since there was a hole in the ice, it appeared the horse may have just wandered out onto the iced over pond and fallen through.

According to Yeager, the owner had placed a harness of some kind onto the horse, and the emergency responders simply attached a rope to the harness and worked together to pull the horse out.

“Nobody went into the pond to hold the horse’s head up. We don’t have the right equipment for that kind of thing.”

Yeager said the horse was very cold when it was first pulled from the pond, but once they got its body temperature up, the animal began to perk up.

“He was fine by the time we left.”
