Friends of the Manchester Mounted Patrol at a Glance

A Bit of Background

The horses and riders of the Mounted Patrol, focuses their patrols in the downtown area of Manchester and the parks.  The horses are an excellent way to interact with the public, as an approachable police presence.  
The Mounted Patrol is another form of transportation, for the officers, allowing them to access to places a cruiser may not be able to go.  The Mounted Patrol maintains the functions of Police Officers, making car stops, writing summonses, or making arrests.

Meet the Horses

General Stark and Enzo



Enzo is a 9 year old 15.3 hand Quarter Horse.  Enzo is a beautiful buckskin color. 

Enzo was purchased in early 2020 to replace Valor who deserved a much needed retirement.  Enzo was trained by Officer McKenney during the Covid-19 outbreak, and so far has come along nicely as a police horse.  

General Stark

General Stark is a Clydesdale cross.  General is 13 years old, 16 hands high and weighs 1,500 pounds.  General has been it the Mounted Patrol for 7 years.
