On Sunday, July 11, 2021 at approximately 1:50 pm, Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue had volunteers respond from the Valley and Big Sky to a request for aid from a rider that had come off their horse on the Hell Roaring Trail. The individual, who was out on a day ride, fell off their horse causing injuries that required assistance making it back to the trailhead.
Search and Rescue volunteers, along with Gallatin Gateway Fire, responded using a single wheel litter and were able to transport the injured individual safely out to an awaiting AMR ambulance.
Sheriff Springer would like to remind everyone recreating outdoors to try and travel with a friend, carry a reliable means of communication, and to have back up plans in case something unforeseen happens.
