On July 5, 2021, Gallatin County dispatch received a report of an individual who fell off a horse by Ramshorn Lake and sustained an injury.
Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue members from Big Sky responded. The individual was located walking out with a group of people and found to have a rib injury. The patient was assisted to the trailhead on a one-wheel litter.
Big Sky Fire responded to the Buffalo Horn trailhead where they transported the patient to the Big Sky Medical Center for further care.
Sheriff Dan Springer would like to remind individuals who are recreating in the backcountry to have some form of communication if possible, travel with someone else and be prepared for a possible change of plans.
