A horse stranded for five days in the middle of a river in America has been rescued by helicopter.

The horse called Colorado became trapped when its rider tried to walk it across a deep river in Arizona.

The creature was rescued after being strapped into a special horse harness, then airlifted to safety.

He's now been reunited with his owner.
