    Wow. That's incredible. I'd like to learn to ride like that... or at least bomb proof my horses to all of that. Nice riding.

    My old coach told me that her instructor used to make her take off her saddle while going through a jumping chute and finsh with it held over her head. I never quite believed her, but WOW! That was truly amazing!!

    That actually made me tear up.. go figure. Absolutely amazing. The horses were spectacular, the riders did a great job. They made mounted policework entertaining!

    I hope the residents of their city have a greater appreciation for their mounted police now. I know I would be proud to have them working for my town!

    AMAZING horses and riders

    I watched the video twice, and still couldn't see them removing the saddles!
    I would've been under the horse Looking!

    A former member of the Denver mounted police lived with me for several years, she also rode dressage. According to her, Denver would have NOOO chance of something similar. That was exceptional.
