This section lets you take a ride through the eyes of a Mounted Patrol officer. You will see sadness and feel
the emotion of saying goodbye to a fellow police officer killed in the line of duty.  You will attend sporting events, parties and city events on horseback, including the annual City of Houston Freedom Over Houston 4th of July Celebration. You will also experience extreme elements, such as riots and protests, but you will be well equipped and trained for crowd control situations. Most of all, you will feel the freedom…  



He Moved Like A Dancer,
Which Is Not Surprising:
A Horse Is a Beautiful Animal,
But It Is Perhaps Most
Remarkable Because It Moves
As If It Always Hears Music.
Mark Helprin 
 “Winter’s Tale”



DO NOT SPUR A FREE HORSE
Latin Proverb

The air of heaven is that which blows
between a horse’s ears.
Arab Proverb
