Concerned residents notified authorities and staff from Philadelphia's Animal Care & Control Team responded.
The horse, which has since been named Darien, is now in ACCT custody for treatment and care.
The agency says the horse is underweight and in need of some extra care.
It is not illegal to own a horse in Philadelphia, but the ACCT says there are better places to keep horses for adequate care and safety.
