BUCKEYE, Ariz. (CNN) -- It was a delicate rescue Tuesday morning in Buckeye, Arizona.

Glendale-based Air West Helicopters carried this horse to safety after it got stranded on a small river island.

The animal appeared to be unharmed after a chopper carried it to higher ground.

The horse had been there since Friday when its owner was caught up in a strong current in the Gila River along with two other riders.

All the riders made it to safety.
