A horse has been hoisted to safety after falling into a ditch in Medway.
The distressed animal was located in the marshes off Pond Hill in Cliffe by 16-year-old dog walker Kaitlin Parish and her pet cavachon, Winnie.
The six-year-old hound led its owner to the horse about 3pm before she raised the alarm with firefighters.
Crews attended and used specialist equipment to bring the animal to safety "within half an hour", according to the Mid Kent College student.
Mum Angie Parish said: "It's the first time Winnie's ever done anything like this. Kaitlin's so proud of her and I'm proud of Kaitlin."
The white horse was described as being "distressed" until it was pulled out.
It is believed to have been taken away by the RSPCA until its owners could be found.
Four foals were also reported to be loose but not in imminent danger.
