Come See Despooking and Training Methods for Police Horses
Have you ever wondered how the mounted police unit has such calm horses? Especially in chaotic and hectic situations? How are these horses trained to keep their cool?
The public will have the opportunity to see how the police horses are trained to be calm, patient and obedient in various situations in order to perform their public duties.
On Thursday, May 19th, 2016, at 7:00PM, the Bethlehem Mounted Police Officers will give a demonstration on the methods used to train their four legged partners. It will be held at the Burnside Plantation at 1461 Schoenersville Road in Bethlehem, PA.
