In 2014 the New Mexico Horse Council along with Corrales Horse and Mule People (C.H.A.M. P.) helped sponsor a community Large Animal Rescue pilot program. The training was presented to first responders by Code 3 of Denver. That training paid off July 7, 2016 when a horse was rescued from an irrigation ditch near Corrales Road and Alameda. The rescue harness used on the horse was obtained by the Corrales Fire Department with the help of NMHC and C.H.A.M.P. A story on the July 7 rescue appeared in the July 9 Rio West section of the Albuquerque Journal.
