The day-long mystery of a riderless horse that showed up in a Canyon Country park has been solved.

Local sheriff’s deputies began looking for a horseback rider Sunday after a saddled horse showed up riderless in Canyon Country, a sheriff’s spokesman said early in the day.

About noon, deputies of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station received a report from someone who found a horse with no rider in Discovery Park near Canyon View Drive, said Sgt. Rich Nagler.

“All we have right now is a horse without a rider,” he said 15 minutes after receiving the report.

Deputies searched the area around the park and through the Santa Clara River wash, treating the incident as a rider who may have fallen off the horse.

“The horse was fine,” Nagler said. “We’re just trying to figure out what happened.

“Perhaps, the horse wasn’t tied up and went for a walk.”

By late afternoon, deputies figured out that the horse did, in fact, wander away from a corral on Honby Street, off Bouquet Canyon Road just south of Vasquez Canyon Road.
