Had this happen to my girl yesterday. Left her tied for 5 mins, come back and she's loosened the rope and got her front leg over it. She was more confused then scared, backed up as far as she could and then waited for me to rescue her. When she was a weanling she was brat about picking her feet up so I used the rope a lot to teach her to pick them up and hold them. She's not had an issue since with having things around her legs.
One thing I've seen a lot is people panicing and running toward a horse that's tangled to help. Never run, it can panic the horse more.
