Flying leap: Horse caught on camera taking a dip in Wilton pool

Posted: Updated:

Wilton homeowner Kathy Saaed received an unexpected visit from her neighbor's horse in her backyard pool.

Kathy Saeed says she was on her way out the door of her home in Wilton when she suddenly saw her neighbor's horse on her front lawn.

Saeed saw her neighbor trying to coax her horse back to her house. The horse took off galloping to Saaed's backyard and leapt into the pool. The horse then got trapped under a pool cover.

The Saeed family's home security cameras caught the entire incident.

Wilton Police Department Lt. Rob Kluk says police officers, firefighters and Animal Control officers all responded to incident.

The firefighters and police officers were able to pull the pool cover away from the trapped horse. The horse was able to swim out safely.

Kathy Saeed may be saddled with a damaged pool, but she is thankful her neighbor's horse only walked away with a few scratches.
