A VIDEO showing the dramatic rescue of a petrified horse after it fell down cliffs at Ceibwr, Moylegrove, has been released by the RNLI.

The footage, captured on an RNLI headcam, shows what happened after Cardigan lifeboatmen and coastguards were called in to help the horse after it became stuck on a tiny shale beach inside a small cove.

The crew managed to catch the horse, and gently coaxed it into the water to swim it out of the cove and onto Ceibwr beach.

The horse is understood to be part of a group of welsh mountain ponies grazing on the headland.
