Mountain rescue volunteers came to the aid of a rider thrown from their horse near Ashworth Reservoir on Monday afternoon (27 December).
Volunteers of the Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue Team were called out at 1.50pm to assist the North West Ambulance Service which was already on scene.
A spokesperson for the Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue Team said: “After an initial assessment, it was clear no further personnel were required so other team members who were still on their way were stood down to return to their families, whilst those on scene assisted the crew and ensured all the emergency services vehicles left the location safely.
“As always, we wish the casualty a full and speedy recovery.”
