Look what I found!

Pictures from the dark ages!
These are some pictures of the Albuquerque Police Department Horse Detail.  I was one of the original squad.  We worked special events, did crowd control and patrolled the downtown area.  The horses were all donated.  Mine was a bay Thoroughbred gelding called Beretta.  He could be silly at the barn but he was awesome downtown in traffic and in crowds.

  2. I'll go look. Thanks for the link.
    These pictures were in the late 70s, 1978 I think. We weren't posse, we were APD officers. I did it for two years, did all the horse training and then went back to patrol.
