What you are going to watch in this video is an exciting show by The Mounted Branch of the Metropolitan Police at Olympia, The London International Horse Show. What you are going to watch is not only the skills that they employ every day on the streets of London but also acts of bravery as jumping through fire.
As a matter of fact, it is all part of the training they do because they come across similar situations in their everyday lives while patrolling the streets. We have seen them boldly go through fire while riots were happening in the city and while debris and items were thrown to them.
Although this is just an entertainment show, which is breathtaking, it really shows the complete trust between horse and the police officer and if they go through something they go together, no matter how dangerous it is. It is not just a show but it also demonstrates the daily training routine horses go through as they carry on the proud tradition of service and duty which began in 1873.
Inspector Simon Rooke from the Metropolitan Police Mounted Branch said: “The Metropolitan Police Activity Ride is extremely proud to be asked back to perform in front of the wonderful crowds at Olympia. The show gives us an opportunity to demonstrate the extraordinary bravery of our horses and the unique bond of trust they have with our officers. The horses that will be performing at Olympia are all operational, and patrol the streets of London daily.” Watch their amazing performance!
