  1. Police officers on horseback gives a calming feeling. My daughter and I once pet a horse with a Royal Canadian Mounted Police sitting on it. We pretty much forgot that there's a man armed with handcuffs, a hand gun a police stick and perhaps a tazer. Somehow animals give me that affect.

  2. Robert Dougherty, a retired Philly Mounted Police officer was one of the first people to teach me to ride. He had a couple of horses at his house on Mermaid Lane in Germantown. One of a kind person and a great teacher! He ran a small summer camp for kids and he took us to the Northwestern Avenue stables to watch old calvary videos.
