It’s not often you see horses running around residential areas, but when they do, it takes people like this deputy to handle the situation! After a horse ends up roaming through a crowded Colorado neighborhood, Arapahoe County Deputy Sheriff Ian Sebold, who was the first to arrive on the scene, uses his cowboy skills -boy to save the day, proving that we can always count on our courage. officers whatever the mission. The moment, captured on camera, was later shared on Facebook by officials from the sheriff’s office.
After several concerned citizens called 911 to report a stray horse on the streets of Centennial, south of Denver, Deputy Sebold was dispatched to handle it. Soon he noticed the animal was very confused, so instead of waiting for animal control officers, he took matters into his own hands. He just jumped on his horse and rode it home, nearly 3 miles from town.
“Horse goes wild in Centennial, deputy holds it in check!” the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office wrote. “Turns out the mount escaped from a nearby field. He tried to make a clean escape, but Deputy Sebold was too quick. The cowboy cop answered the call, ran beaten with the horse, jumped on his back and grabbed him. The horse, by the way, is in stable condition.
Deputy Sebold, an army veteran – part of the 82nd Division airborne – also trains for the mounted unit Arapahoe, which patrols on horseback, so things were a lot easier for him than originally thought. “I saw the horse cross the road, and it is a four-lane main road. I can tell he was terrified,” the deputy told McClatchy News. He just wanted to go home, but he didn’t know how to get there. Without a trailer to take him home, the simplest idea was to bring him back. There was no saddle, no halter, but I was pushed – the old fashioned way – and climbed. “
