Despite “knowing nothing about horses,” during an interview, Lynnea Roth said she tried to help the animals.

In a stroke of good luck, she reportedly then came upon construction workers, one of whom knew how to throw a lasso and helped her safely restrain the scared horses.

“It’s like one of those ‘Only in Texas’ moments,'” Roth said further.

Dispatch reportedly sent out West U police to the scene, and, despite it being outside their jurisdiction, authorities said they determined the two horses escaped from nearby stables.
