It took two hours to get him out.

He was taken to Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital to be treated for abrasions.

Yoder’s training with the Lexington Police Department’s mounted unit is credited with keeping the 17-year-old from being seriously injured.

On Tuesday, the Lexington Police Department announced Yoder was back on patrol.
