Horse Survives 7 Mile Ocean Swim

Horse Swimming in Open Ocean

Down Under, in Brisbane Australia, a 6 year old racehorse named Rebel Rover got himself into some deep water.  Rebel Rover ditched his trainer and started swimming out into open ocean.  The local water police and volunteers frantically tried to rescue Rebel Rover as he headed out deeper and deeper.  The rescue boat had a particularly difficult time as Rebel Rover kept turning away from the boat.  Finally two members of the crew were able to position themselves and lasso Rebel Rover.  Once secured to the boat they began the long trip back to shallow water.

Once in shallow water, jockey Jackson Morris and ridden out of the water.  In all Rebel Rover managed a 6.8 mile swim in open ocean
