If you have never seen what goes into training police horses or seen what they are capable of doing, come check them out. You can also just come over to visit with these dedicated officers. They are excellent horsemen and are committed to this unit. What many may not know is that the officers cover the expense of their own horses, tack and transportation. This is very expensive – as most of you know – and Friends of the Mounted Police Unit works at raising funds to help them with those expenses. “Friends at the Farm” is their major fundraiser for the year.
Check out a little bit more about this special unit on their city web page and watch a very good video - City Minutes Interview - linked at the bottom of that page. Lt. Dave King and Sgt. Keith Hyde are interviewed about the mounted unit and about this fundraiser.
See you there -
