(Bozeman, Mont.) Search and Rescue voulunteers responded to the area of the Eagle Rock Preserve south east of Bozeman Thrusday.  A 60 year old Bozeman woman was involved in a horseback wreck and suffered injuries to her back and shoulder.  Rescuers from Sheriff’s Search and Rescue, Ft Ellis Fire Dept. and AMR ambulance were able to drive rescue vehicles to her location but not the ambulance.  She was packaged and placed on a backcountry recovery liter and driven a short and painful distance to the ambulance.  Despite being close to town the access and removal from the hills took over an hour.  Photo courtesy of the Sheriff’s Office
