Loose Horse Near Earl Warren Showgrounds

Roger. Any update on the horse? I hope s/he's okay. -----------I "found" a horse once, on the Goleta Bike Path, after the horse (a rental) had bucked off its rider. A bunch of us were working on creek restoration and we had seen the horse and rider go by. When the horse came back on its own, clip-clopping along, about 1/2 an hour later, everyone around me just kind of stood there, like it was okay to just let the horse walk on by. It was the strangest thing: complete inaction, bordering on disinterest. I walked over, took hold of the horse's bridle and then someone went to a nearby house (pre-cellphone days) to call Animal Control. The rental stables must have been glad to get back their horse. The poor rider ended up at Cottage Hospital; she hadn't been wearing a helmet. I remember the woman who showed up to collect the horse made a disparaging remark about how stupid it was to be horseback riding without wearing a helmet.
