Crews on Monday rescued a horse that fell into a 25-foot well, according to the San Rafael Fire Department.

The department received a call at 4:37 p.m. reporting a horse was stuck in a well at 690 North San Pedro Road.

When crews arrived on scene the horse was agitated and tired of trying to get out of the well, officials said.

Crews worked for several hours to free the horse, which was not injured.

Officials said it was difficult to get straps around the horse to get it out safely due to the small space in the well.

It appeared there was a cover over the well, which broke when the horse stood on top of it.

The Marine County Sheriff Department, a crane operator and veterinarian were also on scene to assist.
