Hundreds of horses were stranded for three days on a tiny sliver of land surrounded by water and faced certain death until an amazing group of women came to their rescue.
This true story took place in the Netherlands in 2006. The horses became trapped after a fierce storm caused the waters of the North Sea to unexpectedly rise and trap the animals.
Time was running out for the horses, as the bitterly cold winds and icy rains continued to beat down on them.
Firemen and animal welfare officers brought the horses food and water to keep up their strength while they came up with a rescue plan.
That’s when six women, experienced riders with horses that were unafraid of the water, would try to lure the 100 horses to make the crossing!
The rescue became known as the Great Netherlands Horse Rescue and when you watch footage in the video of their achievement you will be left stunned. It’s truly amazing!
