8 August - 2017 Injured Horseback Rider

Eight members of the BSSAR team responded to a late evening dispatch of a 73 year old women that had fallen off her horse in the Porcupine area and had experienced a lack of consciousness. Four members in the Ranger side by side with one member leading the way on a dirt bike travel approximately three miles into the Porcupine area to reach the patient. After two assessments she was found to be stable enough to ride in the side by side back down the trail to the awaiting ambulance for her trip to the Big Sky Medical Center. She had been wearing a helmet at the time of the accident which surely added to the positive outcome of this event.
