Nice shot. Talk about saving gas and being good for the environment.

Uh-oh, what did you do?

I like the matching coats, it's very chic (I'm actually serious, they look very nice).

Are these policewomen? They appear to be females atop the horses. I think mounted police are a good idea but they must have to be well-trained.

Ocala had some mounted police in the downtown area for awhile; they left. Then they tried cops on Segways or whatever you call 'em, but that didn't last, either.

Now I don't see any cops at all. That's not good!

I like this photo a lot!

Nice photograph, Ciel. I'll bet those jobs have a lot of applicants!

Paulie said...

Nice catch! I have seen mounted police in several cities. . .

Two policewomen, brunettes, hair pulled back, chestnut horses, walking in step... great timing and a nice photo!

Enjoy your week, mon amie,

Finally home. These two look out or place. The police in Costa Rica all had motorcycles or aggressive-looking SUVs. That's okay since they don't have an army.

En ville, c'est un peu un gadget, je trouve, mais se faire mettre une prune par la police montée, cela ne manque pas de classe !

Yesterday the horse was a statue, today the horses are real. Wow, those lucky girls get to ride all day.

Diane said...

I have a couple of friends who work on police horses. xxx

ça promène les chevaux , c'est joli mais utile ?

Malyss said...

Chez nous on en a l'été. Ils font moitié police, moitié attraction, mais pour des citadins mal intentionnés, un cheval reste quelque chose d'assez effrayant pour être dissuasif!

Cergie said...

Parait-il que les foules s'écartent pour laisser passer les chevaux ce qui n'est pas le cas d'une voiture.
Ramasse le crottin pour élever tes champis de Paris et mettre sur tes jardinières !
(Je suis toujours tentée lorsqu'il y a un cirque à Cergy)

I hear you have police on rollerblades there, too ;-D

A deux surtout c'est plus sympa que seule!

A funny sight! I can't imagine this in Jackson. :)

Mounted police always have the most gorgeous horses don't they?

Sometimes I wish we could pick a time in history and go there and live our lives back then. I would go back to the time of horses in America. They are beautiful animals and very smart. Your photo is a reminder of those days, for me.
