Search and rescue horse
A search and rescue horse is a horse trained and used to perform mounted search and rescue (MSAR). In many cases, the horse is simply a means of transportation for a search and rescue (SAR) responder. In other cases, the horse is a full member of the SAR field team. Like a SAR dog, a SAR horse can be trained to search for lost persons, using its keen senses of hearing, scenting, and vision.
