A horse needed rescuing after becoming stuck while attempting to leap over a stable door.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service sent three crews to free the animal from High Town Green in Rattlesden, near Bury St Edmunds, on Saturday.
A fire service spokesman said: “It was a horse stuck over the bottom half of a stable door.
“It appears it tried to jump out of its stable.”
The crews, who came from Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds, used cutting equipment to free the trapped mare.
They were called at around 12.50pm and had the animal free by around 1.30pm.
The fire service spokesman said the horse was reported to be unharmed after the rescue.
