Saanich Search and Rescue located a young woman in Mount Douglas park Sunday afternoon, after a horse was found without a rider.

A search and rescue member found the 20-year-old woman at 4:30 p.m. in Mount Doug park, about four and a half hours after she was reported missing. She had minor injuries, having apparently been thrown from her horse, dazing her.

The horse turned up just before noon at its stable around Mount Douglas X and Glendenning roads.

It had a bridle and saddle on, but no rider. It appeared as though the horse’s bridle had been broken, police say.
