Injured brood mare flown to hospital in helicopter harness

A brood mare with a leg injury had to be carried suspended from a helicopter on her way to hospital as the snow at her home near Zurich was too deep for her to be transported by road.

Maya told H&H she found Rheemah unable to get up, in her stable last Friday morning (26 March).
