LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CA (KABC/CNN) – A horse went on quite a ride after firefighters pulled it from a ravine.

The horse got stuck at the bottom of a 300-foot ravine in Southern California and was safely rescued Thursday afternoon.

A woman fell off the Santa Ana Trail while riding the 1,200-pound animal earlier in the day. The horse had to be sedated and blindfolded before it could be airlifted to safety.

The woman suffered minor injuries.
