Sad farewell to the last Cleveland Police Horses as they move to new pastures at The Horse Trust

Cleveland Police Mounted Section is the latest in a number of mounted branches to have been disbanded across the country due to increasing financial pressures with Humberside Police Mounted Section set to close next year. In 2012 The Horse Trust gave new homes to Trojan and Patrick from the Essex Police Mounted Section when they disbanded.

Alfie, Reg and Roman had all served with the Cleveland Mounted Section for over 5 years. They were regularly seen on daily patrols in the Cleveland area and policed football hundreds of football matches at Middleborough FC. They even helped police the Olympic Park and Wembley during the London 2012 Olympic Games. The youngest horse Joey had been with the mounted section for 2 years and was still in training. Cleveland Police horses Bob and Ranger moved to Northumbria Police Mounted Section earlier this month. Two long serving horses from Northumbria Mounted branch, Phlint and Pongo, will arrive at The Horse Trust next week and will enjoy a peaceful retirement in the Chiltern countryside.

Jeanette Allen, Chief Executive of The Horse Trust said ‘We are pleased to have been able to help Cleveland Mounted Police Section by providing a specialist home for these brave and hardworking horses. Police horses Alfie, Reg, Roman and Joey will be joining fellow Cleveland Police horse Big Klyde and our our family of retired, working horses that have served their country and community and those less fortunate rescued animals that come to us in need for urgent care. All of the horses have settled in really well, especially Alf who is so laid back he is acting like he has been here forever’
