Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were alerted to the struggling horse at 09.23am.
Two fire engines from Ipswich East, and a third from Princes Street were sent to the scene at Paper Mill Lane, Bramford, although a representative from the RSPCA did not attend.

A vet was on scene to oversee the rescue and assess the horse’s condition. Fire crews had successfully rescued the horse by 10.20am.
A spokeswoman for the fire service said that the foal is now safe and well.
