A filly is drowning in a river and the leader of the herd manages to save her by dragging her by her mane

May 25, 2017 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

The stretch of the Salt River that flows into the Tonto National Forest, Arizona is a wonderful place populated by wild horses, which live undisturbed basking in the sun and cooling off from time to time in the deep waters of the river.

Champ is a wild stallion who regularly grazes right here near the river, along with his family. One day, a second group of horses appeared on the opposite bank of the river, and many young foals curiously began to cross over to the other side of the river.

It is at this juncture that the unexpected happens! The water level was too high and a young filly, being swept away by the current, began to lose her strength ...

This place looks like a paradise for horses, and these magnificent specimens fully live their freedom, surrounded by breathtaking scenery.


The waters of the Salt River is a refreshing escape from the hot Arizona sun.

The horses take frequent baths in the river all day, having fun with each other.

During the crossing of the river to reach the horses on the opposite bank, a filly was overwhelmed by the current and risked being dragged downstream.


Champ, a wild stallion, ran immediately to her aid. This is a behavior that has been seen in horses, only in a few other cases.

Champ's cool-blooded reaction was amazing! With his mouth and teeth, he grabbed the filly by her mane and tried to pull her out of the strong current.


However, Champ's first attempt failed --- his grip, so as not hurt her, had been too weak and the filly had fallen back into the rushing current.

Champ then clenched his mouth and teeth a bit harder, and this time he did not let her fall back into the water and he managed to bring her back to the group of horses from which she had strayed.


He only let go when it was safe to do so.

Having escaped danger, the filly ran quickly to her mother, visibly shaken by what had happened.

Once he had finished everything, Champ returned to his group, happy to have done his duty to safeguard the weaker and younger horses.

An exciting scene that surprises and inspires us all the more because the stallion's behavior was so similar to what a human being would have done.
