This Horse And Its Owner Endured Three Hours Of Muddy Terror Together


Viralnova brings us this inspirational story of Nicole Graham and here horse Astro, from Melbourne, Australia, who recently went for a leisurely horse ride along the beach with her daughter. However, the afternoon quickly shifted from a relaxing outing to a living nightmare. Graham’s horse, an 18-year-old steed named Astro, ventured into unexpectedly treacherous mud and was followed by her daughter’s horse before she could warn them.

Graham was able to get herself, her daughter, and her daughter’s smaller horse free, but Astro remained stuck.

Graham spent 3 hours clinging to the horse as he continued to struggle.
