If you break a leg in the middle of nowhere, you can count on search-and-rescue to save you, but what if your horse needed emergency help? Surprisingly, the City of Riverside in California has had enough of these calls to put together the Horse Animal Rescue Team—a unique unit that specializes in these unusual equine scenarios.

Thankfully, this unlucky horse and his human found themselves trapped in a ravine in this special unit's operating area. Although shockingly hot temperatures delayed rescue by a day, the two opted to stay together until help could come for both.

Jon Call doesn't technically count as a horse... but we're giving the species a couple extra points anyway for just looking so awesome and dominating this extreme workout! via Storyful View Now

Though we call them hedgehogs... we think this specific prickly friend is more accurately a "pipe hog"!
